Posted: Ron on Meander @ Sat Jan 16, 2016 6:49 pm
Well folks, my wife Anne and I have decided that we'd take on hosting a Canadian gathering of the C-Brats in Powell River BC this August. Probably the 2nd weekend but the exact date will have to confirmed yet.
For those yet to discover it, Powell River is located on the mainland of BC on the east side of the Salish Sea (Georgia Straight) across from Comox. There is no direct road access to Powell River, so it is accessed by ferry or a better yet use that wonderful C-Dory to check out a great new cruising area.
Powell River, population of about 13,000, has a nice marina, good stores for food provisioning, marine stores, golf course and it is about an hours cruise from Desolation Sound marine park, 5-6hrs to Princess Louisa marine park and, about 6-8 hours from the border, with lots of great anchoring or marina stops on the way if desired. Stop in at the Gulf Islands, Vancouver, Smuggler Cove, Pender Harbour or Jedidiah Island, just to mention a few.
August weather is usually calm and sunny. Come for the CBGT and stay to cruise some of these great areas either heading home or on your way up.
For BC and other Canadian C-Brats come visit a new area or return for a visit to Powell River to meet with C-Brat friends new and old.
Fishing has been good in our area in the last few years and August is a prime time for Chinook Salmon
Anne and I will let you know more details as they are confirmed and we will ask for a sign up page when the date is fixed.
Looking forward to seeing you.
Ron and Anne
