Update from Jim Rard
2018 Sail Alaska
Tuesday Morning -07/10/2018:
The fleet is coming up on Prince Rupert! Jim says the fleet has had to do a fair amount of motoring and not much sailing as the winds have not been in their favor recently.
Everyone is having a great time! Some of the wildlife they’ve seen in recent days are eagles and whales. The bears aren’t yet out in mass on the beaches, as the main salmon runs are a little late coming in this year. As soon as the main salmon runs hit, the bears will start coming down from the higher elevations to the beaches. They have been catching fish though as Jim mentioned this morning, they had a fish taco -potluck night and the food was amazing!
They should be in cell range for a few hours and have internet.
