9781550172973: Voyage of the Dreamspeaker: Vancouver--Desolation Sound Cruising Highlights

Its maze of inlets, islands, sandy shores and rocky shoals gives the British Columbia coast some of the best cruising in the world--19,000 kilometres of spectacular coastline.

So it's no surprise that boaters flock here from around the world. Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones first found their way to Vancouver Harbour in 1988, after they left London's Docklands, sailed the Atlantic, cruised the Caribbean and explored the eastern seaboard of the United States. They've never left, choosing to rent an apartment in Vancouver's West End and moor their 36-foot sailboat Dreamspeaker near Stanley Park.

In the ensuing 15 years, they've explored many nooks and crannies of BC's coast, gathering useful information for boaters and meeting all sorts of colourful characters. The result is Voyage of the Dreamspeaker, a personal chronicle which details one idyllic summer cruise from Vancouver to Desolation Sound. On the way the authors unearth snippets of intriguing history and meet coastal pioneers old and new, and they interweave these stories with their own past adventures and new discoveries of an area they have grown to love.

From the bustling urban marinas of Vancouver's False Creek to the warm and secluded waters off Musket Island Marine Park (near Hardy Island), the authors describe their favourite places to visit from Vancouver to Toba Inlet. Browse Molly's Lane Market in Gibsons, buy some fabulous home-baked bread at the Gambier Island General Store and don't miss visiting Harry Roberts' original log cabin and apple orchard on Nelson Island, which is kept beautifully intact for visitors.

Illustrated with unforgettable colour photographs and detailed charts and maps, Voyage of the Dreamspeaker will inspire even the most cautious of boaters to cast away and explore the best BC has to offer.

About the Author:

Accomplished boating guide authors Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones have produced a series of seven Dreamspeaker Guides that provide the most detailed coverage of the Pacific Northwest, from Olympia, Washington State to Cape Scott, British Columbia.



Over the last 27 years the Yeadon-Joneses have logged thousands of cruising hours charting, recording and photographing their travels. As passionate ambassadors of the Pacific Northwest's unspoiled cruising waters, their Dreamspeaker Guides are filled with meticulous hand-drawn charts and vital information that guide boaters safely into busy harbours, marinas and sheltered anchorages.



The Dreamspeaker Guides began with Laurence's love of drawing, design and geography and Anne's flair for descriptive and entertaining letter writing. Combining their talents, they were able to create a successful series of guides that promote a safe and fun boating lifestyle.

Review:

"The book is rich in colour photos and hand drawn maps; it includes many profiles of interesting boats and eccentric characters. Even for someone who has lived on the Coast for a long time, the book offers a few surprises. I didn't know, for example, that on Gibsons' seawalk there is a tenting spot, 'Club Ted,' for kayakers."
-Ian Degrass, Coast Reporter

"...I was curious to learn what this pair of writers and photographers could tell me about such a favoured destination and all the stops in between. The answer is: plenty."
-Martyn Clark, Times Colonist

"From London's Docklands, the 36-foot Dreamspeaker sailed the Atlantic, crossed North America in a truck, and plundged into the Pacific, for a jaunt from Bowen Island to Desolation Sound. Pity her crew didn't jettson more travel-writer cliches, but there's a jolly practicality to the text that makes this handsome book a good gift for a sailor, if not an armchair traveller."
-Globe and Mail

"...This latest volume from Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones is a more personal account of a four month trip spent revisiting favorite anchorages and friends between their home base in Vancouver and Desolation Sound to the north...Illustrated by color photos and Laurence's hand drawn maps, Voyage of the Dreamspeaker is a wonderful read for armchair travelers or for all of us who share Anne and Laurence's love of the BC coast."
-Diana Mumford, Wave Length
