26 Feet to the Charlottes
by Cameron, June
A mutual love of sailing, fishing, and beachcombing brought June Cameron and Paul Holsinger together, but it was their shared sense of adventure that took them to Haida Gwaii (the Queen Charlotte Islands). In 1983, the couple crossed the notoriously challenging Hecate Strait in the 26-foot wooden sloop "Wood Duck"–a major undertaking for the small craft. The cruise brought them great rewards.
