Sailing The Inside Passage on a Catalina 27: Part 2 of 4 | Alaska, Whales, and Never Ending Tacking!


Location: Alaska
Latitude: 64.20000000
Longitude: -149.49000000

11 years ago, we sailed the Inside Passage aboard a very bare boned Catalina 27 from Port Hardy, all the way up to Juneau and back. I posted a video of this trip in the past, but decided to re-edit it to improve the audio and flow with the (relatively) retro footage I captured.

In this episode, we continue on from Bishop Bay on the central coast of British Columbia up to Petersburg, Alaska. We see lots of whales, enjoy a ton of sunny weather, and battle to windward against the NW winds that come with clear weather in this part of the world. Part 2 ends in Wrangle Narrows, and with a montage of what is coming up in part 3!

If you missed part 1, you can find it here:

I hope you enjoy this re-edit! This time, the music is from the free YouTube audio library, which did not exist when I first made a video of this trip a decade ago!
