Training on the Arctic Joule

The Arctic Joule is now moored down at the Vancouver Maritime Museum. We encourage anyone who’s interested to come down and check her out. Kevin, Paul, Denis and Frank are down daily training in English Bay. This is tweaking time for the team as they row The Arctic Joule and determine what’s working well with the boat and what needs adjusting. On Wednesday May 29th The Arctic Joule heads back to her builder Robin Thacker in Nanaimo for the final adjustments. She’s a beaut!! On Thursday evening the team were happily moving along at nearly 4 knots in their training. Not bad for early days. She’ll get a whole lot heavier when fully loaded but the team will get a whole lot stronger too.

We spent a full day doing ocean rescue training with the hugely experienced David Sutcliffe. Check out our video.

Capsize test

Very tense times testing whether The Arctic Joule will re-right if she’s flipped. Watch and see!!
