49 degrees 03 min N

125 degrees 55.5 min W

Speed 6 knots

Observation - sailing cloudy

Course - 305 degrees true

 

Day 1 started with a typical west coast rain as trainees were brought on board, orientated and assigned their watches and bunks.  We slipped lines at 14:00 and headed up into the slough just off Ucluelet. Taking advantage of the last of the low pressure system moving through we set square sails before the light south easterly wind.  As the day progressed some tummies got a little bit worse, but a breeze picked up to the point where we were sailing under full squares main and main topsail making 6 knots and welcomed by a breaching humpback whale.  Weīre settling in and hoping to make the best of the sail through the night tonight in hopes of reaching Brooks Peninsula sometime tomorrow.  All hands are well if a little bit seasick.  The sun is starting to come out and peopleīs outlooks are rising with it. Best regards, thank you, Skipper John signing off.
