Memorial Day Excursion to Haines, AK

 May 24-28, 2013

Clif and I brought the boat around Douglas Island last Thursday to Auke Bay Harbor and headed north to Haines, Friday afternoon, with two lovely crew members, Christin and AJ. We spent the night in William Henry Bay, both coming up to Haines and sailing back. Our trip had phenomenal SE Alaska weather, incredible wildlife sightings, a considerable amount of beer/mimosas and we even gained a crew member, Jeff, on the way home. We couldn't have wanted more for a sailing weekend--- except for maybe more sunscreen. Take a look at some of our photos from the trip!

It's Definitely Summer!

May has hit Juneau and we have enjoyed some beautiful nights out in the Gastineau channel testing out the sails for the summer. Tonight was just Clif and I. Blue bird sky, slight sunburn, little wind, but an excellent BBQ aboard for dinner. Can't beat dinner out in the channel! Excited for sailing trips to come this weekend and next--- crossing fingers for some beautiful weather.
