Well you have to know the history behind the Fast Passage, there were about 40 built in Philbrooks Boat Yard in Sydney, BC in 1984/85 and 10 more built in the States by Tolleycraft. Moonshine was one of the first off the production line and she was sailed by Francis Stokes in one of the first single handed around the world races and she finished third in her class. It was incredible to meet a fellow who had sailed her across the Atlantic in 1996. Unfortunately we did not have a chance to chat for very long because he was off to a meeting at the local yatch club.
We spent some time exploring up the creeks that were in the area. It is a beautiful part of the world.
