S/V Restless Journeys
Wrangell to Ketchikan
07/11/2011

We left Wrangell early to make our way to Meyers Chuck. After a smooth transit of Zimovia Strait and a run down Ernest Sound we arrived at Meyers Chuck around 2pm averaging almost 7 knots! Boomerang found a 40 ft space at the dock and Restless moored alongside Boomerang. We toured the small community then had a steak dinner in honor of Dave Keyser on board Restless. Dave left us when we arrived in Ketchikan.
We left around 8am on the 10th for our trip to Ketchikan. We had a north wind and were able to sail almost to the dock in Ketchikan!! Best sail day of the trip so far. We will leave Ketchikan tomorrow (12 July) and go to an anchorage still in Alaska before we cross Dixon Entrance on Wednesday. We should arrive in Prince Rupert on Wednesday afternoon.

Arrival Wrangell
07/08/2011

After a nice two day stay in Petersburg, we transited Wrangell Narrows heading for Wrangell. We were able to sail in Sumner Strait for about an hour before the wind died. We moored at the Reliant Dock, downtown Wrangell. A Cruise ship is in port with us. Its the Regatta of Oceanis Cruise Lines. We plan to eat dinner at the Stikine Inn tonight. We leave early tomorrow morning for a long 53 mile day to Meyers Chuck for the night. Then on to Ketchikan on the 10th. We found out that John Winslow is waiting for us in Ketchikan. Dave Keyser will depart in Ketchikan.

Pybus Bay to Petersburg
07/06/2011

We poked our heads out of Pybus Bay to check out the weather. Since it wasn't so bad we decided to proceed on to Petersburg. We saw several whales along the way. As we approached Petersburg we noticed there were a lot more icebergs in the water than there were a month ago. We refueled and then moored in the north marina where we had tied up before. We will do laundry tomorrow and have lunch and dinner tomorrow at our favorite places. We plan to leave early on Friday morning to catch a favorable current in Wrangell Narrows. We should arrive in Wrangell on Friday afternoon.
