The Flotilla is Underway!

And we’re off! The Slowboat 2017 Flotilla to Alaska officially left Roche Harbor yesterday morning and had a beautiful, calm cruise up to Silva Bay Resort and Marina on Gabriola Island.

This is such a great group of people! All of the flotilla participants have already spent time in the Gulf Islands, so we won’t dilly dally here for more than a night. There’s a ton to see, but we figure getting everyone on to new territory is the best plan!

We’ll be blogging in more detail over at for the duration of this flotilla, but I’ll plan to post some highlights here at Riveted every few days. If you want ALL of the detail, follow us here, and also at Slowboat! (Here’s a link to the Slowboat facebook page.)

We’ll be crossing the Strait of Georgia this morning, and going into Pender Harbour for the night (and for groceries).

Conditions sound ideal for crossing the strait this morning: wind calm, seas rippled. Let’s go!
