Hey - First post, I hope this is the right fourm! I'm looking for any advice on my travel plans this weekend.
Pending any changes in the forecast
I'm planning on heading out of Anacortes early Friday morning (daybreak) across the Strait of Juan De Fuca to Port Townsend on a 33 foot sailboat which cruises under power at just under 7 knots.
The trip is about 30 miles give or take so I should be at Admiralty Inlet around 11 am which is at the beginning of the ebb. I am planning to stay close to the eastern edge of the inlet to get a little less current
against me and to avoid the rip at Point Wilson.
This is my first trip across the strait and Admiralty Inlet so I want to make sure I don't do anything stupid or unsafe.
Backup plans are Deception Pass on the flood in the AM and then find somewhere to stay, possibly Oak Harbor or Everett.
