West Coast Sailing
We have spent a lot of time cruising the West Coast in our
sailboat, White Dragon
and our Jeanneau 43DS Dragonsinger. We are members of the
Royal Vancouver Yacht Club and enjoy the yacht
club facilities up and down the West Coast.
Because Georgia Straight is protected from the Pacific
Ocean by Vancouver Island, we have excellent sailing conditions.
Tens of thousands of years ago, glaciers carved out islands, passages,
and fjords that make BC's West Coast one of the top sailing
destinations in the world.
When we travel, people ask us if we can really sail year-round. If
you have good wet-weather gear and a heater on your boat, you can
sail BC's West Coast twelve months of the year. Most people
(including us), cruise May to October. If you want more wind and
bays all to yourself, cruise the West Coast from November to April.
