VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA AND SAN JUAN ISLANDS FLOTILLA
June 23-30, 2017
CRSA will join an American Sailing Association (ASA) flotilla cruising off the west coast of Washington and Canada. The flotilla will consist of 12 boats charted from San Juan Sailing and leaving from Bellingham, Washington. There will be several group dinners as well as plenty of time to explore on your own.
Departing from Bellingham, we sail to Lopez Island, Victoria on Vancouver Island (2 nights), San Juan Island, Orcas Island, Lummi Island, and return to Bellingham. Two nights will be a raft up with the remainder at marina slips. Total sailing NM- 107. The area is known for stunning scenery and wild life while Victoria is famous for European charm. A current passport is required as we will go through Canadian and US Customs.
We will be challenged as sailors with tidal currents, fog and shipping lanes. This cruise is suitable for experienced and new sailors. CRSA Commodore Valerie Askren and husband Ben have sailed here several times chartering from San Juan Sailing and recommend both.
We have chartered two 41' monohull sloops with 3 cabins and 2 heads each, WIND SONG and ARDENT. More information on the flotilla and the boats is available at https://asa.com/flotillas/.
The estimated cost of the cruise is $1120 per person, based on two per cabin and six per boat. If we do not fill the boats, the cost will increase. Captains have first cabin pick followed by crew in order of receipt of the deposit check. To reserve a cabin, a deposit of $400 per person is required. Deposits and final payments can be refunded after the deadlines if a substitute crew member can be found.
