Day One: After some back and forth on departure time, the weather forecasts made it clear, Sunday was the departure time. There was a break in the westerly winds coming down the Juan de Fuca Strait. Hugs and ‘see you soons’ were made and Fenwick Light soon pulled away from the harbour waving to our supportive fans. We have now motored out past Jordan River where we have found some wind, though we have been fighting the tide, making 2 – 3 knots, but barely managing to move forward. But as we are a sailboat with a lot of distance ahead, we must sail!
We have been a bit quiet today. Eating lots (I hope there is enough food), napping lots, and processing the journey ahead of us. Tomorrow we will round Cape Flattery and head out into the grand Pacific.
