VANCOUVER to SAN FRANCISCO: Days 1 & 2 Neah Bay to San Francisco: Mr. Toad's Wild Ride!

One night at the dock and 1 night at anchor in Neah Bay. Forecast off the Washington coast was for SE 10-15 knots with 5-6 foot SW swell. NW winds were not forecast until at least Wednesday. Other boats (4 of 6) decided to wait it out until Wed.(Current forecasts now indicate the NW winds will not begin until later Thursday (and will be light).

It has been a wild bouncy noisy ride. We are currently 60 nm West of Gray's Harbour. Heading approximately South (200 deg T) at ~4.5 kn. One reef in the mainsail and genoa furled down 20%. Likely another 18-24 hrs of this. THEN comes possibly too light NW winds.
