What a great sail! We left Barkley Sound early in the morning for the 80 mile sail down the straits to Becher Bay. The breeze eventually filled in from the West and we had great sailing with reefed main and poled out jib in 25-35 knots. A bit creepy as the fog blew in and we blasted forwards at 8-9 knots but fun nonetheless.

Our friends on Yahtzee snapped this shot of us heading towards Race Rocks. This was the start of an epic day of sailing that ended with a spinnaker run across Haro Strait and sailing right through Mosquito Pass to the Seattle Yacht Club outstation at Henry Island.
Anchored off the south side of Jones. A few days in the San Juans was just what we needed before heading back to Seattle.
