August 16th- Gorge Harbour to Prideaux Havenc


Departed Gorge Harbour


MISSION ACCOMPLISHED- Desolation Sound Mountain Range seen.
This ended up being a long sailing day since Jon was silently racing the larger sailboat that followed us out of Gorge Harbour. They were ahead on just one tack; Anomaly mostly bested Silver Cloud on the strength of our clean tacks and faster performance in lighter winds. Silver Cloud gave up just as Jon was putting up the Spinaker.
All the way we finally had a beautiful clear view of the Desolation Sound mountains. On our 4th try, we are finally seeing them.
We arrived in Prideaux Haven around 6pm. I had hoped to sit out in the cockpit to see the stars, but I was appalled by the light pollution from the surrounding motor yachts. The anchor lights on these boats are absolutely glaring. I don't understand why they think that is ok in such a beautiful remote marine park.
