On the run

19 September 2011 | Out strait of Juan de fuca to points south

0000hrs 19 September we tied up inside Boat Haven, Port Angeles after a 15hr run from Barkley Sound; Cleared Customs at 0700; rinsed the boat; walked into town for a lovely breakfast. Dot found a bus running to the Kingston ferry, and Ginger from SV Marcy picked her up.

In the meantime, I set up the computer on the boat to check long range weather, and plan getting underway again in a couple of days... Uh-oh! Big, bad stuff coming; we'll be stuck here a week or more unless we leave now!

Dorothy ran around like a maniac getting stuff together, dealing (with help from Ginger & Peter) with a transportation crisis, picking up our crew John, driving back out to Port Angeles (and then back to Seattle on the last ferry, taking Rusty & Rascal who each for different reasons, would not appreciate this next part).

Exactly 24 hrs after arriving in Port Angeles, we departed at midnight, back out the Juan de Fuca Strait towards the Pacific

20 Sep 1600hrs, we are 15 miles off the WA coast; 550 miles to go at 7 knots. Sunshine, almost no wind but swells bigger than the boat... Har!!
