I am so excited! I have just recently received late word from my coxswain that I (and others) have been accepted for the day sail across the Strait of Georgia aboard Iroquois-class destroyer HMCS Algonquin. It will be an early start for this experience, to specify, I need to be at Oakridge Mall in Vancouver at 0500! Wow, but totally worth it!

Thanks for reading (odds are that no one will ever read this, I mean seriously, who reads these?) and message me or add me if you are also going.

    Enjoy the day sail. If its your first time on board a Canadian Forces vessel (even if its only for a day) it will certainly be an experiance to remember. Make sure to get yourself some sleep.

    Believe it or not there are alot of us who read the blogs.

    Thanks! It was amazing! I had no idea that a destroyer had such maneuverability!
