    Anacortes to Matia Island



    We left Anacortes early and promptly came out into the channel into the now familiar morning fog. Soon out of the fog sailed this beautiful little wood boat making its way towards the straits. Im starting to enjoy these foggy mornings, getting used to using the radar and find myself looking forward to what sails out of the fog in ...

    The day dawned hot and light, we managed to sail our way out of bellingham bay but then found ourselves out of wind. Yet we had all day to deliver Scotty back to Anacortes so we slowly motor sailed towards Guemes waiting for the wind to fill.

    Oak Harbor to Anacortes



    Friday dawned Sunny, no fog and light winds for our trip back up the inside of Whidbey Island.
