Oona River...... Posted by: chodups on Jun-25-12 11:57 PM (EST)
.......Last night Denis camped at a bend in Petrel Channel. Sure would like to know if his route to Petrel behind Anger Island was due to conditions in Principe Channel but lighthouse weather reports didn't suggest that was the case. Maybe it was just for a more intimate experience. Petrel is big but not like Principe.
Today he entered Ogden Channel and made good time to Oona River, a Scandinavian settlement at the mouth of the Oona. He’s probably sleeping in the school house tonight.
Depending on wind, currents and the outflow from the Skeena River he will make Prince Rupert tomorrow (~22 NM) or stop at Kitson Island Marine Park just 7-ish NM short of PR and a nice place to camp.
