I have my sailboat moored just off Skunk Island next to Old Alcohol Plant Marina. i am a member
of the Port Hadlock Yacht CLub and mooring
. If anyone is interesteed in seeking refuge immediately North of the bridge keep us in mind. Ajax Cafe is also close with a small dock
and plenty of water depth
. Write down my number to keep on your boat 360-765-3463 if you need a reciprocal buoy.
As mentioned before, sailing around Marrowstone to the East may be better, easier and fast becasue of broader space. Inside the Island you usually have to tack often and the wind
directions change several times as you progress northward. Also note that in Oak bay just S of the bridge is notorious for calms when the wind
is from North so staying outside of island may be better than starting engine
and motoring through the calms.
