09/07 Klemtu to Butedale
Part 1 of our trip, paddling with Dave and Bernhard from Klemtu to Butedale clockwise around Princess Royal Island including a stop at Campania Island (118 nautical miles).

Princess Royal Island is the 4th biggest island on the BC coast after Vancouver Island and the two main Queen Charlotte Islands Graham and Moresby. It is named after a British merchant ship that played a role in the 1789 Nootka Crisis.

Our major route choice at the start was whether to go clockwise or anti-clockwise around Princess Royal Island. A good forecast for the first week caused us to go clockwise to make best use of the good weather on the more open Outside Passage.
