Melissa & Dave - Adventures at Sea

Running the Rapids

In order to make it to Egmont to pick up Jim and Margaret in two days we have to run all the rapids today from Whirlpool, to Green Point, to Dent, and through Yuculta rapids.  This requires super tight timing because you have to hit all 4 sets of rapids at the right time or you will get stuck not able to pass through them.  But of course Dave hit them all spot on – with a 15 minute window to spare.  Yep that’s how tight the timing is!  We tried fishing a bit – alas no luck.  We pulled into Squirrel Cove and stern tied as the bay was full of boaters.  I guess we are back in civilization now as we haven’t shared a bay with more than two boats for the past month!
