Nanaimo
Nanaimo is a city on the east coast of south-central Vancouver Island, making it somewhat complex to get to, but it will be well worth the journey. Nanaimo is known as the Harbour City of Vancouver isle, it is stretched down the east coast, and is British Columbia’s sixth largest city which may be surprising to some. It derives its identity from the wealth of recreation activities available – many of which are centred around the harbour situated at the centre of the city. It has a wealth of history thanks to the marina, which is also of great interest to the many visitors that make the journey over to the island every year. Travellers can try their hand at a number of activities including hiking, boating, biking, kayaking, scuba diving and snorkelling which all form part of the fabric of this beautiful location. Nanaimo is a bustling city, with a population of almost 85,000, and a multitude of eateries, art museums, and shopping outlets. Many visitors use Nanaimo as a central point, as it provides the perfect location to use as a base if exploiting the rest of the island. It is also a great point to access world […]

Back to Sailing School! Picking up a Mooring buoy Back to Sailing School! Picking up a Mooring buoy Bayliner 3288
Nanaimo
In our series on sailing school hints and tips – this week we are going to be looking at picking up a mooring buoy! Even the most expert sailors amongst us will have had moments of dropping that mooring buoy over and over again! Read our sailing school guide and remind yourself of the best method; Check your marks…. Mooring buoys are most likely attached to a chain that runs along the ground on the sea bed, which in turn is attached to a heavy anchor of some form, buried in the sea bed. The buoy itself needs to be heavy enough to support the heavy riser chain that allows the buoy to sit on the service, so you will often find a ring and a pick up line that sits on top of the buoy, that you will then attach your yacht to. Get Set…. So when you are ready to pick up the mooring buoy, first begin by looking around the area and checking your chart and almanac to see which buoys you have permission to use. Then when you are ready to make your approach get your boat hook and mooring lines ready. Aim your boat into […]

Now if the idea of sailing Vancouver sounds great but a full adrenaline rush is what you’re really after, hiring a RIB could definitely be for you. A RIB (or rigid inflatable boat) is a fantastic choice for those looking for speed, power, noise and entirely great fun! Traditionally they’re often used by police forces and other agencies. Known for their speed across the water, they’re actually designed to handle the toughest sea conditions too. Consequently you can be reassured that they’ll be built to handle extreme conditions and safe to travel in. One of the great benefits of a RIB experience is that you can actually travel quite a distance in a short amount of time. If this all sounds exciting, why not try contacting a company that specializes in boat charters? They’ll be able to give you a good idea about what availability they have and what they recommend. It’s vital that you choose a company with an excellent reputation for their technical ability and safety both in their fleet and their staff. You’ll find RIB boats to be equipped with powerful diesel engines to make sure they can race through the waves. RIB boats are fitted with […]
