A last minute request for a sailing excursion was sent to me by Puget Sound Sailing Institute for a couple, Sean and Joy, to take a three hour sail in Commencement Bay. Joy was visiting from San Francisco and it was too nice a day to waste. We sailed along off Ruston Way,  back over to Brown’s Point and around some anchored ships. A very nice couple and a wonderful day. Light winds scooted the Martin 24 along nicely. I taught them some very basic sailing tasks and they seem interested in learning more so, I pointed them to PSSI, the Windseekers, the Mountaineers and gave them my business card as well.

After my doctor’s appointment, it was too late to go racing so I gathered up Cindy Craig, Jane Montague and Suzette Butler and went sailing on Margo. It was a gorgeous evening. Left the dock around 1930 and sailed over to the race area in front of Tyee Marina just in time to see some of the last finishers. The wind was about 10kts and the sea conditions were just ripples.

21 June 2012 Planning Meeting for Port Hardy Trip

Posted in Deliveries on 22 June 2012 by Capt.JerrySte

Met with Capt. Chris Davis at Johnny’s for some planning. He is going to crew with me on the Diesel Duck delivery North to Port Hardy. We plan to only travel during daylight hours unless some unlikely condition dictates we do some night passage(s). We are beginning to think about stop-overs, food and other logistics. Started creating way-points on my GPS last week and continuing to do so as time progresses. We plan to leave Tacoma on the 16th of July giving us plenty of time for the 25 July delivery date. Need to check into Canadian fishing licenses and other requirements.
