Re: Sailing from Seattle to Port Townsend for 1st time

The channel at hadlock can be a hoot if GOING WITH the water, ie 6 knots boat speed, add in 4-5 knots of water speed.......yee haw! Almost as much fun as the narrows when they were running 6-7 knots, us doing 6 with the current......man o man did Colvos feel slow at 6 knots and 1 knot of current!

Depending upon time you have, Kingston or Edmonds for day one, ludlow day 2, should be able to get to PT the next, stay there a day, maybe do hadlock then Edmonds/kingston which ever you did not hit on the way up. Then back home. When in Edmonds, stay away from the E dock, there are some roughnecks with Castro designed boats about slips 51 and 52 or there abouts...........
