Colin Angus R2AK Day 10

Race to Alaska

Colin finally got out of the Grenville Channel. Yesterday he had 20 knot winds against him so he had to pull into an anchorage early and this morning the current and winds were still against him. Finally, when the current slackened in the late morning he left his shelter and continued rowing north through the channel.

It’s been another soggy slog of a day and he rowed for the entire day except for half an hour when the wind puffed. All day, he’s had light head winds and weather that alternates between drizzle and downpour. He described as monsoon rains but without the warmth.

Colin passed the mouth of the Skeena River without any issue, voyaged along the west side of Kennedy Island and crossed over to Porcher Island, where he is now anchored. He’s about 180 km from Ketchikan and he’d like to reach the end within 2 days. If not, he’ll run out of food and have to start fishing.
