Hey come on guys! Why pick on the Oregon Coast? Actually, you are correct that it can be treacherous and ports are limited. I've sailed OR, WA, and NO Cal coasts quite a bit. Safest small boat ports in Oregon are Newport and Brookings. Coos Bay is close behind; Columbia depends on current and sea conditions, and can be a lake on the incoming tide and a torrent on the next ebb. Generally, in the summer when the Pacific high has set up, sailing the coast of Oregon is quite appropriate.
