Our adventure started on May 23 when we crossed Georgia Strait from our home port on Gabriola to Vancouver for a family event. We were sailing in 17 knots of breeze about a third of the way across when a lower shroud let go, making us take down the main in a hurry and motor the rest of the way. After three days in the city doing fun things with the family and repairing the shroud—new skookum stainless steel plates to replace the old rusty ones—we’re ready to head north in the morning.
