Jaguars on the Island Prowl

Kitty Owners Take to the Water

Your JOTI Committee is pleased to announce a JAGUAR PROWL immediately following JOTI this year. On Tuesday July 31st we will drive in convoy to Gold River a small community near the eastern terminus of Nootka Sound on the west (Pacific) side of Vancouver Island where next day we will board the MV Uchuck III for a leisurely journey west through the Sound to the community of Yuquot (Friendly Cove) on the Pacific coast. After exploring we will reboard and return to Gold River. This is the traditional territory of the Nuu-chah-nulth (“all along the mountains”) people, who have lived here for many thousands of years.

The MV Uchuck III is a WWII mine sweeper, made from wood. It has been converted to a cargo ship with capacity for 100 guests. It is well maintained, and sails these waters daily. There is a cafeteria on board for lunch. Go to: www.getwest.ca/contact/ for information or call 1 877 824-8253, and to make a reservation for August 1st. Make sure to watch the video that is centered on their web page.
