Sure was amazing out there. Chilly when the sun went down though. I took some buddies that had never been sailing, we must have seen a dozen whales. Had a couple pop up 20 yards off starboard Saturday afternoon with a nice spray. Don't get to see that very often!

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.

Marty

Yea we were out Saturday. Started out ok at 5.5knots until we go to the east end of Gedney then it just died and we motored.

Brutal how 1 or 2 knots an hour can turn a 4-5 hour trip into 8-9 hours.

Same thing for Sunday heading west from Oak Harbor. Right when we got to the Camano head we picked up to 5+ knots downwind with the sails.
