North Channel Cruise 2020 – The Benjamin Islands west to John Island and back to Killarney.
It’s funny how a poor night’s sleep in a beautiful anchorage might colour one’s view of that place! I have a love/hate relationship (mostly love) with the Benjies as sometimes you get caught in a wind from an odd direction … Continue reading
