Pre-Sail: June 28th, 2008 - Brownsville Marina to Seattle

The lease on the slip at the Brownsville Marina is over at the end of the month. We have to get it out of there this weekend and into some marina to be determined in Seattle. We learned the hard way that you can't get out of the bay near Brownsville if the current is coming in. It just so happens that in order to make it out with the current on Saturday we will have to start sailing at about 5am and be out of the bay no later than 7:40am or it is game over. We'll head north and through a small channel. Use the map below to scroll over and see Seattle. Ideally we will head up the locks and into Lake Union or Lake Washington for a fresh water moorage.

I'm hoping we have a 3rd crewman with us. Last week's adventure showed me that it will be tough in rough weather to manage the boat with just two people. This is especially true if something goes wrong like the jib ripping to shreds.

This looks like a rad boat. I hope to come aboard some day after all the kinks are out.
