“Rain Rupert”

Date/Time: Sunday, September 7, 2014
Location: Prince Rupert Rowing & Yacht Club
Weather: Mostly Cloudy, calm
Plan: Depart tomorrow, southbound to Grenville Channel area.

Today Prince Rupert lived up to its nickname. Our reasonably nice morning weather changed to steady drizzle and heavy fog with moderate breezes by mid-afternoon, as a weather front passed through the area. We were happy to be in port.

We made our run to the grocery store and took care of some minor maintenance items, and then after dinner the weather started clearing from the west. The sunset was spectacular, with low crimson clouds and clear skies to the west. We’re hoping for good weather for the trip through Chatham Sound; the following day we will time our passage to get a tidal push through Grenville Channel.
