A message sent in the evening means we have been paddling and have reached a new place. A message sent in the morning means we are staying put.

If there is no SPOT message for a few days do not panic! SPOT is new technology and a glitch or two may happen. We have loads of back-up with VHF radios and EPIRB.


Doug and Jonathan love the fact that so many of you are following their progress but they also enjoy reading your comments when they have access to the internet. The links are at the end of the Spot message for the day. To read the comments: click on the Comment link. To leave a comment: click on the Envelope. They even answer some of them!!

JR already! Won't be long before you are in Victoria! Are you planning on having a pint or two or staying a couple of days?

Hi Mike

As you will have seen we have laid up in Sooke prior to launching on our last leg back to the Comox Valley. Victoria was going to be just too difficult, especially with all those Tall Ships buzzing about.
