Vancouver Island - Day 39

We were both feeling a little on edge about departing this morning. I was very aware that my repairs may not hold and Ngaio had gotten herself worked up about the crash yesterday. She feels so bad about what happened and keeps saying she doesn’t want it to have ruined the whole trip. We just missed slack tide for launching so we had a little bit of swell, tiny compared to what we have launched in before. We carefully carried Ngaios boat to the water, she got in and I launched her from the rocks. I could see she had paddled clear of the rocks and the swell and her boat was still afloat, phew. I paddled out and we began our long day on the water.
