First of all... I would like to thank all of you who have emailed me in support of the venture. Believe it or not... I have even gotten some atta' boys for holding down the fort and supporting Sean. It has been hard! Some days pass quicker than others! I am just glad that
Sean has gotten around Victoria safely and there is an end to this outrageous trip sooner than we might think.
As you know, Sean took a layover day in Uculeut when there were fierce winds and minimal visibility. The next day, the winds dropped and he departed for Port Renfry. I think the thought of turning around or aborting the trip were still in his mind, but he persisted and went with his instinct and (VHF radio) that stated better weather.
With the wind at his back, he got to Victoria pretty quick. I think he was a day early than had predicted. Awaiting him in Victoria (I believe in a sea kayak) was a friend of a friend of his. This kind man took him in for the night at his house. Sean phoned me from the strange area code to let me know that he was okay. He was charging his cell phone among other things...
It looks like (as of 10 mins ago.) he has made it South of Nainamo and camping out for the night.
Again... Thanks for your emails, phone calls, questions, and support. They are immensely appreciated.
