Hi again, Joshua:
Earlier this year, I was sent Caneron Eckert's lovely article from Small Craft Advisor  "Desolation Sound in Surfbird". I would like to add this to our extensive collection of logs. Cameron says it's fine with him provided I get your permission. Could I have this (and possibly a PDF of the article??)? I would of course, credit the Advisor complete with link to your web site.
Best regards,
Uncle Al (W3854)

Uncle Al,

Good to hear from you. Absolutely, you're welcome to add it to the collection. If you'll send me a reminder after Christmas I'll track down the files and send you a PDF. 

Thanks as always for the support.

Hi Al,

Here's a little video edit from a trip we did in the Gulf Islands in 2010. It was one hand on the tiller, the other on the camera -- so it's not rock-solid stuff, but Wayfarers will probably enjoy it. Be sure to turn up the sound.

This past summer we sailed from Nanaimo north to the Desolation Sound area and back -- just over 200 Nm. It was a fantastic cruise -- I've got a short article about that trip coming out soon in Small Craft Advisor

Here's a photo from the sail north from Powell River with Savary Island in the distance off the port bow.

all the best,
Cameron & crew.

Hey Richard,
 I hope that all is well.  I saw this in the latest edition of Small Craft Advisor and thought that you might enjoy it.  Life is good here.  Lots of kayaking.

Take Care,

Uncle Al;

I received this from Mark Nye who sailed with me one year at mid winters.  It is an excellent article from small craft adviser. Maybe you can forward to the group.

Hi Al & Richard,

Thanks for the positive feedback on the article. I just got back from this summer's Wayfarer cruise; this time from Nanaimo south through the Gulf Islands and San Juan Islands -- about 220NM over the course of nearly 3 weeks. It was fantastic.

I don't mind if you share the article but I think you'll need permission to post it from Joshua Colvin of Small Craft Advisor. His email is

I am heading up to the far north tomorrow and will be out of email contact for the next week or so.

all the best,
