Lay Day in Uki...

Today we had a rare lay day in Ucluelet -- this gave us a valuable opportunity to wash some clothes, fix damaged gear and prepare for the run to Victoria. We also had some crew changes as we picked up Rana and sent Karl home.

Since the weather was nice several of the crew decided to go surfing in Tofino, plus Seamus wanted to see his parents at the Leanard Island lighthouse. We tried to call them the night before on the VHF - they could hear us, but we couldn't hear them. They were however watching our progress on the satellite tracker and knew where we were.

Tomorrow will be our last offshore passage - a 90nm run to Victoria which is looking like it will be downhill ride!
