Well sadly Colin is out of cell phone reception and I didn’t hear from him today. Thank goodness for the tracker. Between that and monitoring weather conditions, I feel like I could have almost been there on the boat with him. Minus the hard work, big waves, and sleep deprivation that is.
Colin’s had another stellar day. Based on his speed, it looks like he sailed most of the day. He had an early start again, around 5 am, and there were strong winds from the south. Many of the other boats in the Johnstone Strait didn’t leave until the early afternoon so I imagine conditions must not have been favourable. Nonetheless, Colin made it through the Johnstone Strait and has left Vancouver Island behind. He’s anchored about 60 km north of Vancouver Island near Duncaby Landing.

At Angus Rowboats, our passion for adventure naturally draws us to the mystique of the Northwest Passage – one of the world's most captivating and perilous waterways. Historically, this elusive passage promised a shorter shipping route, spurring early navigators to fervently chart and struggle through its icy intricacies.
The summer of 2023 saw three audacious teams, including one using our very own RowCruiser boats, aiming to be the first to traverse NW Passage solely by human power within a single season. As the season concludes, we've chronicled these attempts, and catalogued past human-powered endeavors to navigate the Northwest Passage.
