Sailing and Kayaking the Pacific Northwest | Raw Footage from Midsummer

This short video is a little different from our normal vlog-type content, but we hope you enjoy some footage from a sail and kayak trip we took earlier this summer. We took advantage of a breezy day to get Blue Moon off her mooring, and we learn a little more each time. We then traded in our sails for paddles, and toured a tandem kayak around the bay, with a very special view of our favourite neighbours (a heard of seals)!

Thank you for everyone’s patience and understanding when we took a couple weeks off to deal with some personal matters. We’ll give you a bit of a life update in coming videos, but for now we wanted to share some sailing and kayaking we did to send off summer!

Disclaimer: we are very fortunate to share this marine environment with seals and other mammals. We made sure not to disturb them and keep plenty of distance. But thanks to “max zoom” with our camera lens, we were lucky to capture some shots of them!

For anyone new to the channel, we live on a 30 ft sailboat full time and recently moved to an off-grid moorage the summer months! This means that we get all of our power from the solar system or by running the Diesel engine, and we have to pack in all of our water and food using our little dinghy with an outboard motor. Blue Moon is a 1978 Catalina 30 sailing vessel which we acquired in 2020. One year later we decided it was time for a road trip and built out a 1998 Delica to drive across the country. Now we live aboard the boat full-time, take weekend trips in the van, and explore this beautiful world.

Thanks for watching!
