We finally got a break with a weak low making it through the pacfic high, so we headed north on a straight run to Cape Flattery. The trip was a perfect motor – calm seas and no wind. Thirty six hours after leaving Newport Oregon we turned passed the cape and headed into Neah Bay for fuel. It was still early in the day with the flood in our favour and a NW breeze to help us down Juan de Fuca to Victoria.
Well that breeze soon turned into 35 knots and Adesso with full sail up screamed past Victoria all the way to Darcy Island Marine Park near Sidney. We averaged 10 knots for the 8 hours trip but maxed out at 12 knots – the picture is evidence!!!
