Time to cross QCS Posted by: DenisDwyer on Oct-22-10 2:26 PM (EST)
You got me thinking about how long it took me to cross QCS so I pulled out my charts to see my time marks. I left Duval Point at the NW tip of Port Hardy at 8:25am, I passed through the Gordon Islands at 9:25, rounded Castle Point on Desserters Island at 10:30, passed through the Millar Group at 11:25 and reached the mainland coast at 12:15. Just about four hours with no breaks other than water and a power bar.
It's amazing how being alone in the middle of long crossing like QCS provides a solo paddler with plenty of initiative to make it across before the weather can change.
