Isle Au Valen
26 July 2021 | Isle Valen
Isle Valen (or Isle Au Valen) is a beautiful, remote island in Placentia Bay, Newfoundland.
This video is the story of sailing to Isle Valen from another island.
I waited for a wind shift to leave on, and that shift came very late in the afternoon. I rowed back, got the dinghy aboard, raised anchor and got underway.
I only had 27 miles to go, there was a tight entrance to pass thru, and no way to make it before dark. The remnants of a hurricane were coming, and if I waited until the next morning to leave, the winds would be less favorable, so I chose to leave in the evening and make an overnight sail.
