Passage on the Passage
The Discovery Passage Passage went off without a hitch again last Saturday.
A flotilla of canoes, kayaks, rowboats and paddleboards made the annual trek to Cape Mudge and back as a reminder of a time past when links between Cape Mudge and Campbell River were done by human-powered boats. Upon arriving in Cape Mudge, participants paid homage to Cape Mudge’s traditional canoe before heading back on the turning tide.
Notable participants were Don McIvor who at 88 was the oldest to cross, having rowed in the event every one of its eight years; Jamie Boulding and the Nordic Ski Team from Strathcona Park Lodge; and the Bravehearts dragon boat team.
