|Clear enough to see the Olympic Mountains from the Columbia.|
We left the Columbia River around noon on a clear Saturday & raised sails while dodging a field of crab pots. Two hours of trade wind like sailing had us all out on the deck soaking in the sun & enjoying the movement from the sea. Then like most of our time out at sea, the wind became irregular & light. Deciding to try motor sailing again, having little success with it previously, we left up the main & mizzen which gave us an extra knot this time!
|Molly & Gabe cozy while Peter's on watch.|

|Out in Hecate Strait with no land in sight.|
