Island View

Perfect day to be on the water. Env Canada did have a strong wind warning for Haro but the winds weren't expected to come up until later in the late afternoon.  A slight breeze did come up as we made our crossing from Sidney Island to D'Arcy Island
A leper colony was established on D'Arcy Island in 1891. To read more about this aspect of the Island's history click here or click here As we had lunch quiz master Gary tested our knowledge with treats for those who knew the right answer.
Some paddlers did a seal launch as we were getting back on the water. Unfortunately some small stones jammed the skeg on one boat.which resulted in one paddler going for a swim.
