Amigos Cruise
Gulf Islands, Canada
Late April 2008

(If you like, you can skip down through the prose and go straight to the pictures below!)

Seven boats, including my I36 “Holole’a” were out for 5 days in late April for our annual Amigo’s Cruise, here in the BC Gulf Islands.

This year we went to Ganges on Saltspring Island for the first night, and these three photos (first two are I36 Holole’a, third is I30 Lady Frost, skipper Barry Patchett) were taken the following day in a freshening SW wind, on our way to Silva Bay on Gabriola Island. One of the boats clocked the wind at 35 knots+ a little later, and we had a blast of a reach, after reefing things down a bit.

The weather this year has been very unsettled, and quite cool, more like early March instead of late April. We hope we see some visiting I-36ers in July at the 4th Annual All-Islander Rendezvous on Thetis Island.
