Vancouver Island - Day 6

We woke early after a night of wind and rain. We were sheltered in our camp spot, but we had to move today as we had run out of fresh water. San Josef Bay was where we were headed as it was only 5km away and there was a river there. I had spent the evening on the marine radio, listening to the weather, I also got messages from my dad in NZ. We had a small window in the morning to make the paddle before the winds and swell picked up any more! We were packed and on the water at 0830. I knew this was going to be tough but I knew we could do it and get there safely.
