We left Ryus Bay under blue skies as cats' paws ruffled the water. We first motored west, then south around Duke Island through Sealed Passage. From the chart we knew that we were passing between two fields of rocks us, but the water was so calm that all we could see of the rocks was an occasional brown bump.

On the south side of Duke Island we passed Club Rocks, a scene of activity with whales blowing and fishboats circling.

Just past Club Rocks the southwest wind became strong enough to sail and we enjoyed a rare afternoon of sunshine and sailing, finally anchoring in Lincoln Channel in time to enjoy our last evening in Alaska with wine and cheese in the cockpit.

Why did Alaska save the best weather for last?
