A photo walkthrough of the Corsair 36

the “Microship on Steroids”
August 13, 2006

Hello from Pender Harbour… I finally made the 34-mile run across the Strait from Nanaimo after the wind moderated a bit earlier this week. Today, north toward Lund (although Environment Canada predicts 15-25 knots on the nose early this evening… hence this quick update so I can get moving!)

Here was the view enroute here, after passing Texada Island:

The beauty around here is stunning… and likely to increase as I continue north. 151 miles so far since leaving Camano Island.

Whilst hanging about yesterday, I put together a photo walkthrough of Nomadness.

Finally, here’s an amusing bit: after arrow-straight navigation across the Strait of Georgia from the SW corner of Whiskey Golf, I went into a holding pattern upwind of Fisherman’s Resort Marina while awaiting my sister ship’s return from a jaunt up the harbour and the logistical support necessary to attempt a landing. The resulting GPS track is my abstract artwork of the week:

Gotta run… 40 upwind miles to go today!
