In Neah Bay, WA (Crewing on SV Sapphire to SF)
Two long motoring days (Day 1 to Port Angeles; Day 2 to Neah Bay) -- at least we had very little bashing up Juan de Fuca Strait.
We are now in Neah Bay, WA. Expecting to leave tomorrow (Tuesday). Forecast calls for 10 kn SE winds with little in the way of seas.
Makah Marina here at Neah Bay has seen better days. (Seems only about 30-50% of the electrical conections work; washrooms need some real cleaning.) But the docks have plenty of room, and it is a calm peaceful place. No complaints.
Sapphire's trip can be followed *live* (AIS tracking) on the web at:
Enter MMSI 338101205 and/or Sapphire.
Note: this only works when our AIS transponder is on (i.e., only when we are underway). Also, we may not show up when we are (i) farther offshore (e.g., 50 nm) and/or (ii) if there are no AIS receivers on shore (as seems the case for the west coast of WA's Olympic Peninsula.
