And we're off!

We motored out of Port Angeles at 7:30 this morning.  We are officially loaded down.  We raised the waterline when we did our last bottom job.  Apparently it wasn't enough... We'll get lighter as we eat our provisions and use some fuel and water.  Anybody not behaving will be thrown overboard, that should help as well.

The weather looks calm with light winds.  Looks like we'll be motoring out of the Strait of Juan De Fuca.  The winds offshore are expected to shift coming from the north on Saturday.  That's just what we'll be looking for to push us down the coast.

Our crew on board for the journey: Andy Schwenk (owner of NW Rigging), his 12yo son Dylan, Erlin, and Zia.  We have a great group with us and I'm looking forward to some good times at sea!
