9 hrs to Oak Harbor?!?!?!?! you must have been sailing saturday! Not a lot of wind out there to make some passages in a reasonable amount of time. I went from Edmonds to Anacortes in 9 hr motoring one day ave about 6 knots, it would have been 24 hrs sailing, as there was NO wind most of the day.
You travel times need to take into account the ability to sail at X knots too! or use the iron genoa!
Took me 6hr plus to do a 14 NM race saturday. took 4 hrs to do the first half, 2 hrs to do the last half as the wind came up. And the last half mile or so 20 min, as the wind died from 7-10 knots to less than 3-4 as it was most of the day.
I never did see any whales while I was moored in Everett, but then with a 1 hr drive away depending upon traffic, i did not go out as much as the 15 min drive to Edmonds from my home.
Hopefully you had a good time overall.
