Making Curtains, Farewell Party, and Sunset on 2nd Day

We are in Victoria doing some last minute errands (such as buying an EPIRB and fixing the SLR camera) before heading around the corner to Barclay Sound. The sail down from Maple Bay was relaxed and we visited with Jitka at Cherry Point and stopped in Sidney to collect our recut cruising Spinnaker from UK Halsey sailmakers. The weather has been mixed with plenty of rain and south east winds - things should clear up on Thursday (tomorrow) when we plan to sail for Sooke.

A few pictures from the last 2 weeks...

Chris,

Have a great trip!
I'm glad you finally see the value of a clean bottom... I'll have you dry sailing yet :).
