Chignik

29 September 2011 | Chignik, Alaska Peninsula, Alaska

Chignik means 'strong wind'. While the settlement of Chignik is in a bay (Anchorage Bay) with good shelter from most directions, it is subject to williwaws. It was sad to see the remains of a fibreglass sailboat on the beach. We were told it anchored in the bay one night, a wind came up and drove it ashore.

Chignik is basically a cannery settlement--during the off-season--when we arrived, about 70 people live there. We tied up to the cannery dock to take on fuel, refill the propane bottles and use the telephone.
