Victoria, BC to Oregon in late Sept.??

We're considering sailing back to Oregon from Victoria, BC area in late Sept. Would like to know if others have done that route at that time, and what the weather and conditions were like, if you had to wait long for a break, etc. Many thanks.

jrd22 will become famous soon enough
I haven't done the trip but a couple in our marina does it every year about that time (they live in Portland so only go as far as the Columbia). Generally the weather is great in Sept., but you are still going to have to watch for an early fall windstorm.

The prevailing wisdom is usually to leave early to mid August, however that's generally for those heading on further south.

September can be beautiful, so as John indicated barring an unusually early storm a trip just as far as Oregon should be OK, as ever keeping an eye on Mother Natures' whims.

done it, sorta

I've made the trip from Canada to the Columbia six times in mid to late August and only once did we experience weather that was uncomfortable. That time I was on a delivery of a Catalina 34 and we got pushed around a bit. You will have the wind behind you. My last run was from Bamfield, Vancouver Island to Astoria, Washington in 27 hours. Just watch the forecasts and make the run without putting into port as there are no good ports between Neah Bay and Ilwaco. You should be able to go the distance in a bit over 24 hours.

Good Luck

Thanks for responses. We've made the trip in August a few times, but think we'll try to get back by mid-Sept. rather than later.
