Johnstone Straits is the narrow piece of water that separates the North American Continent from Vancouver Island.  This body of water is full of whales, tugboats (American and working), beautiful tree lined shores, and current.  I really enjoy this transit. 

I like to be on Johnstone early in the morning before the wind rises and go with the current.  Peak current on May 30 is about 7am.  We will leave Blind Channel near 5:30AM and plan to ride the current north. 

Cinnamon Girl will take a right turn up Havannah Channel and thru Chatham Narrows on the way to Echo Bay.  I keep hearing what Pierre & Tove have done with the Echo Bay Resort and look forward to seeing them again.
