Youth Scholarship - Vancouver Island 2012

Been in touch with the Youth Scholarship team undertaking their 3 week expedition in Vancouver Island, where they have been trying to out-manoeuvre the NW Gales during their paddling section, around Cape Scott, the North West tip of the Island.

Sounds like Sam, Becca, Kim and the rest of the Team are having a brilliant time!
Having completed the Sea Kayaking section, they will now move onto Mountain Walking. The whole expedition is self-sufficient, predominantly wild camping.
