Terrwyn Sails on... With Her New Owner

19 October 2016 | Friday Harbour, Washington.
We are now a one boat family! Yes, we sold our precious Terrwyn, who so ably took us around the world.

Last week we sailed our BCC 28 Pixie from Port Townsend back to Canadian waters (she proudly wearing her new Hasse, Port Townsend sails and Best Coast Canvas sail covers and dodger).

Whilst docked at overnight at Friday Harbour who did we bump into (not literally, thank goodness) but Terrwyn and her new owner bringing her to her new home.

It was a sentimental visit but there were no tears shed as we knew that Terrwyn had found a safe new home and loving owner. After helping Terrwyn into her new slip we sailed Pixie back home to Canada.

This closes one chapter and we are eager to sail into exciting new chapters. Who knows where Pixie will take us?

Tying The Knot Party

28 August 2016
After circumnavigating around the world co-skippers Cathy and Bill were ready to celebrate! Over 80 people joined them for this occasion in the garden of The Latch Inn, Sidney , B.C. Many of our guests traveled from afar... Paul and Catherine even sailed from New Zealand to be there to celebrate with us.

What fun we had and the food that was served by Luigi and Valeria, owners and chefs of The Latch, was delicious. The crowning touch were the two Baked Alaska cakes.

Throughout the dinner the music from the SV Terrwyn's Playlist was played interrupted at times with spontaneous singing of favourite sea shanties. "Roll the Old Chariot Along" and "Barrett's Privateers" were the favourites that night.

Whale of a Welcome!

18 June 2016 | 48 17'N:124 03'W, Strait of Juan de Fuca
Poppy
What a welcome!

Yesterday, sailing from Bamfield approaching the entrance to the Strait of Juan de Fuca we came across a pod of Grey Whales. We spent an hour watching them majestically moving through the water. Breaching, spy hopping and diving they gave us a show that neither of us had ever experienced before ... nowhere in the world. We finally decided to move on or we would have been arriving in Neah Bay after dark. We couldn't believe it when the whales moved with us and escorted us along the Canadian coast until we headed across to the U.S.

Thank you Canadian Grey Whales for our welcome home show!
