Smugglers Cove

The sun is supposedly coming out - soon!

We're heading for Port Sidney Marina to spend Labour Day weekend with boating friends from the Crescent Beach Yacht Club and it would certainly be nice to finish off the boating season with summer weather. Right now it feels more like November and we're anchored in Smugglers Cove waiting for the wind to go down and the seas to calm enough to make the crossing to Nanaimo, then South to Sidney.

Smugglers Cove is a lovely little anchorage -but with a narrow and rather treacherous opening to navigate. We are totally protected from the wind and have a stern line tied to a boulder on shore, so all should be well for the night.

I'm waiting for the sun to show it's face so we can carry on toward Sidney!

That's a great point to bring up. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don't know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game if you are commenting as an individual.

To be very true, majority of people all around the world have some ideal places to live and British Columbia is my favorite place. Perhaps we have different desires and wishes and we spend all our life to achieve those goals.

In Crescent Beach Yacht Club,the scenery is incredible, the food is extremely reasonable and the people are unbelievably friendly. It’s a hidden gem. The Members at Crescent Beach Yacht Club, are indeed lucky to have such a great spot to call our own.The only thing that doesn’t change is the Crescent Beach Swimming Club’s dedication to make each summer a better summer both for its permanent inhabitants and the summer dwellers.For me, what was true 46 years ago remains true today, and it is our tradition of providing this type of summer experience for members and their families which makes our Club such a strong institution.
