Last weekend we had quite a blow down at the harbour – up to 55 kts of wind! Bruce and Kristyn were kept on their toes, watching the boats. Here’s some of their footage.
Under their watchful eyes, the boats fared pretty well, with some dock lines needing reinforcing, but North Star of Herschel Island sustained some damage – one of her dock lines ripped out part of her bulwarks!
Bruce already has a workday lined up, with Eric’s help. Bruce was planning to replace some rotten wood this summer, but this accelerates the timeline!
One of our boats had a bit of a run-in with a deadhead last week, thankfully caught before there was damage! Kristyn noticed that Ragna was looking a little skewed at her mooring, and got Bruce’s attention on it – he dislodged the log and got Ragna resting comfortably again. Big thanks to Kristyn and Bruce for that!!
When the wind isn’t blowing too hard, we’ve had some great sailing – here are a couple of videos, with Ragna, Enke, and Arnt & Valerie’s boat Anja.
