My wife and I left Seattle
on July 3, 2005, went north around the northern tip of Vancouver Island, south to Astoria, spent the winter of 2005-2006 in Portland
, and continued south to San Diego
in the spring of 2006. From there we did the Baha Ha-Ha to Cabo San Lucas and worked our way south as far as Manzanillo, Mexico
. Then we turned around and came back north to the Sea of Cortez
The hairiest part of the whole trip was between Astoria and San Francisco. The Pacific High gave us 20-30 knot
winds most days and up to 12 foot seas. Once we passed San Francisco, gunk-holing to San Diego was relatively calm.
