Jupiter and her crew rarely cruise in consort with other vessels, however soon we will accompany eight boats with thirty-five mariners aboard for an adventure transiting Desolation Sound and the Discovery Islands.
A year in planning, Team Jupiter has collaborated in curating a twelve-day escapade for the Ocean Reef Yacht Club (ORYC) of Key Largo, Florida. This dynamic association of mariners was founded in 1962 on the seafaring principles of navigation, socialization and revelation. The popular dance that year was the Loco-Motion.
One hundred ORYC members recently completed four days of acculturation and advanced maritime studies at British Columbia’s Capital of Victoria. Now the Club Flotilla participants will test their knowledge and experience in the Salish Sea.
Follow along with the Flotilla and Jupiter here.

Now we know what the partying in Victoria was all about. Sounds like a fun flotilla journey. Looking forward to upcoming photos and congrats on hitting 12,000 nautical miles. That’s incredible. Safe travels to you and all the ORYC Mariners.
