Seattle to Kodiak


We are based in Seattle and got lucky by getting the whole summer off (!). My plan is to sail up to Kodiak, AK where I worked salmon seining one season long ago. I am interested in getting some ideas on routing from others in sail boats who have done it.

Depending on weather, we would like to go on the outside up as far as we can. The idea is to make time going up and take our time coming back. I am hopeful of doing Seattle to Sitka in one shot but realize we may have to duck into a few places on the way up. Due to time constraints and the short season (and short-handed crew: wife and two children), going up on the inside will probably take too long.

Our departure date is June 1. We need to be back in Seattle end of August. If you have done this trip, or close to it (PWS, Kenai, etc), and have some suggestions, please let me know.

Many thanks.

Re: Seattle to Kodiak

I made the trip across 3 years ago, and it was a nice broad reach coming out of Cape Edgecumb, to the end of the Kenai peninsula. In later June. About a 285* T heading, It would probably be closer to 280* for Kodiak. I flew into Kodiak earlier this year and the area has really grown up since I was there last.
