Posted on


The ship is away in the wilderness on her spring trips. We’ve received a few occasional reports from crew aboard the Maple Leaf sent in via sattelite. Hope you enjoy these small slices of their day:

Sailed under mainsail, foresail, staysail, and jib for 2 hours with brilliant sun with a steadily increasing breeze reaching a top speed of 7.5 knots on a beam reach as we rounded the tip of North Thormanby Island!  What a day!” – Apr. 21, off Georgia Strait

“Holy! Sea otter bonanza [in a new location]! Wow…looks like somewhere between 50-80 individuals…I lost count with the binos.” – Apr. 27, off northern Vancouver Island

“Maple Leaf currently under reefed main, fore, staysail making 4.9 kts on a beam reach!  Afternoon tea is served, sun is shining, sailing our way north to Klemtu.” – Apr. 29, in the Great Bear Rainforest
