R2AK Day 10 - Tailwinds and currents


by Julie Angus

IMG_6867Colin’s spent the day weaving his way through a maze of islands and inlets.  He was up with the sun once again and is just anchoring now.  He’s had moderate tailwinds and a reasonable current, allowing him to make steady progress.

Although Colin’s out of cell phone reception right now, thanks to Small Craft Advisor Magazine, he has a satellite phone to provide them with updates.  Colin told the magazine that last night was not as restful as he had anticipated.  The gate on a carabineer he uses in his anchoring system opened and his boat became freed from the anchor line.  Instead of lying comfortably at anchor, he had to row to shore and secure his boat in a less optimal way.  Fortunately, in the morning light he was able to find his floating anchor rode and retrieve his anchor.  Let’s hope that’s the last time his boat tries to run away.
