Gulf Islands Sail Training with Youth Trips, March 2010

Posted on


Maple Leaf and her crew have been out in the Gulf Islands over the past few weeks, with our team-building and sail training program for youth.

The earlyish spring this year is glorious in the islands – making for great sailing and also just great days of being alive and cruising the channels and islands of this beautiful green and blue world.

A couple of notes from Capt. James Warburton and Capt. Kevin Smith:

  • Watched a group of transient killer whales at a stellar sea lion haul out, mid-trip on our first trip out.
  • Post from the ship: “Sailed right past a brown pelican today in BC waters. I know we’ve had a warm Spring but wasn’t expecting that.”
  • Post from the ship: “Less than 1 hour till Spring Equinox. And already a gorgeous morning in the Gulf Islands it is going to be a great year.”
