May 29 - We are off

I think we set a personal record for getting from Lake Union to outside the locks.  We left our dock at 6:58 and were motoring from the locks by 7:57.  That included opening two bridges and locking through the small locks.  We didn’t have to slow down but a little at any point.  The tide was low so we even fit under the Burlington Northern Railway bridge at Shilshole without it having to open.

The seas and winds were calm all the way to Port Townsend and it wasn’t until there that we started to pickup onshore winds in the Strait and the start of the ebb current into Admiralty Inlet.  A few hours more of slogging got us through that and we were travelling up Haro Strait with the current and following seas.  We had the anchor down and engine off in Garrison Bay on San Juan Island at 6:30 PM.

Today’s distance - 70.4 miles.
