    Default Barefoot Raid?

    It's been eight days since the Barefoot Raid, in British Columbia, but I have not seen a single picture yet. Did I miss the thread or would one of you lucky participants be kind enough to tell us how it went?

    I didn't participate this year, but I'm leaning toward taking part in it next year as it looks like a lot of fun!

    There's a good description here:

    "The origins of Raiding are lost in the mists of time. Safe to say that as long as people have been taking boats out on the water, groups of boaters have been plying oar and sail, for adventure, exploration, and to visit mayhem on their neighbouring communities.
    Frozen, grim, Norseman in their longboats; soggy, determined Haida in their war canoes; and sun-baked Island-hopping Polynesians; all have played their part in inspiring modern seafarers to group together and set forth into the unknown..."
