The Gulf Island Samper Cruise – by John Lund & Marianne van Toor
Page 17 & 18, October 2016 Issue

I apologize for transposing the requisite “Swanson Channel” with “Sansum Narrows” to and from Otter Bay, Pender Island. Swanson Channel is the correct waterway and will get you to this boating golfer’s favourite Gulf Island marina every time. Sorry for the confusion.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats.

The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
