Ocean sailing in the Pacific NW

Good afternoon,

I live in Portland, OR. I haven't sailed in the last 15 years but I'm finally ready to start again. The last time I sailed I crewed a Beneteau 38 from California to Tahiti. I want get a boat for a weekend hobby - relearn what I've forgotten and eventually gain more offshore experience. My question is, what is the best harbor closest to Portland? One with a good selection of boats for sale and that isn't too far of a drive, say compared to Port Townsend or Bellingham. I feel like I'm starting from scratch again, but my main goals are to sail down the coast to SF then across to Hawaii. That's a few years away.

Thanks,

Dag
