Away we went

Although we technically departed for Barkley Sound on the 3rd of July,  much of the last few days have been spent idly motoring up from Tacoma to Poulsbo and port Townsend for social engagements, fireworks and the obligatory boat project.  

After an aborted attempt on the 6th to leave dungeness spit in strong winds and a nasty wave pattern,  Melissa and I finally left the spit at 0500 with a fresh westerly breeze but a much more tolerable wave action. 

We are now making about 5 knots under jib and mizzen;  a very comfortable arrangement in these swells though probably not the fastest.  The mainsail may come up later. 

If you would like to see where the heck we are,  you can check out our where are we now page in the menu bar above. 

As this is my first post from my phone, please forgive any irregularities.

  1. 5 knots under jib and mizzen sounds great! Our overall speed average from Seattle to Costa Rica was almost a knot slower! Enjoy Barkley, and be sure to spend some quality time in Effingham Bay! Cheers, Jessie
