    This was a tough day. The winds in the forecast were wrong. It was a day of strong headwinds. i nearly stayed on nootka but decided to try and push on and get the crossing out of the way at least. Following day was even harder.
    The things we do for fun! ;)

    I am still amazed that you made such progress those days. Paddling into headwinds is not much fun!
