Winter Cruising in the PNW
I am drawn to the grey blue of the Pacific Northwest. Winter is a favorite time to explore, the colours can be extremely crisp and dramatic.
And other times in winter the water and land are cover in a blanket of fog, that slowly lifts through the trees and waters the moss.
It can be very beautiful when enveloped in the thick damp fog. This trip up to Desolation Sound in Jan last year, we had a nice sail past Mary Island and White Island, even though we were socked in with fog.
Winter is often a great time for wind, it is cold but so very fresh. We have a full enclosure and it is lovely to sail inside with slippers on.
We cruised this past January to Princess Louisa Inlet with a group of friends in an assortment of boats. From a power catamaran, to a wonderful solid coastal motor sailor, a very much racer cruiser and us, a tupperwear cruiser with bed heaters.
