Crossing the Strait of Georgia

Cruising in the Pacific Northwest is characterized by “gates,” or challenging bodies of water that must be traversed to get to the next cruising area. Slowboat is helping to demystify each of these gates. In this segment, Laura Domela and Sam Landsman discuss how to deal with the Strait of Georgia, the gate between the San Juan Islands and Gulf Islands to the south (and west) and Howe Sound, Jervis Inlet, Desolation Sound, and points north.
