When we brought Oh Joy up to Skyline from Elliot Bay it took us four days. We hit nasty weather all of the way which peaked at 60 knots around sundown the first day. Faced with failing light, a dying GPS and the storm, I thought better of sailing into a strange harbor under those conditions and we diverted to Port Townsend instead. We went back to the boat to finish the trip the following Tuesday. It took us 9 hrs from Elliot Bay to PT the first day. From PT to Skyline in very light air was another 7 hrs..
