Desolation Sound Cruise - September

5 Boats left JWM setting out for Desolations Sound.  We made overnight moorage at Prevost enjoying beverages on Rhumba Girl.  We then anchored at Montague, then moored at Nanaimo and Powell River enjoying each stopover and nice weather.  On the morning we leave Powell River for the entrance to Desolation Sound, an approx 20 knot journey, one boat's engine alarm goes off.  Being assisted by two of the other boats, back into the marina they limped.  After determining all would be ok but they would not be able to proceed but rather make their way slowly home, two boats chose to accompany them homeward (although they were very much encouraged to continue on) and two boats continued on to their destination.  What  fantastic weather and scenery they experienced.  Once in a lifetime could it be that perfect!  What an experience!  After seeing their photos and hearing of their time there, it made all the rest want to go and soon!  So a trip was planned for the spring while making their way homeward.
