Seattle to San Juans and back (July, 2012)


Launched from 14th Ave ramp in Ballard, cruised with Thomas on Tsunamichaser up to Port Hadlock, then continued to the San Juans (with Val and Liam, I think) where we cruised with Cat’s Cradle up to the northern State Parks (Patos, Matia, Sucia). The highlight of the trip for me was when Annie and I had a screaming reach from Matia to Sucia in ~30 knots of down-slope wind coming off Mount Constitution.

From the SPOT way points:

  • Indianola Creek anchorage – Anchored off cobble beach, but had to move out in middle of night to avoid breaking ship wakes at low tide
  • Point No Point – Beached cats to use land head
  • Port Hadlock dock – Stopped here to fish & say adieu to Thomas
  • Port Townsend Marina – Spent night at dock after rainy pizza walk.
