Maintaining a 84 year old wooden sailboat comes with a variety of challenges, including a very detailed inspection by Transport Canada. Captain Mike explains what The Duen is subjected to in the "off season" to keep it ship shape.
Over the past year, we have been welcoming many locals aboard the Duen as our out of town guests are thwarted by the pandemic to come to our city in great numbers. We are truly grateful for the support from Victoria businesses, Vancouver Island residents who have literally “kept us afloat” over the last 18 months.
Here at the 3 hour sail we are working on upgrading our online presence with professional photography, video and even hired a drone videographer! The big day was scheduled, and we crossed our fingers for good weather.

“I cannot think of a better example of a happy cruising family than that of the crew of Duen. Among the many cruising people I have met, Dottie and Albert Fletcher’s boat have been among the most remarkable.”
