Re: SageCat cruise report

... Was thinking 8#, but will probably go with the 13# for the big anchor. I used an 4# Mantus during my North Puget Sound trip this past June. Anchor on 20' of chain and 200' of rode did fine. I didn't experience significant wind/seas. a 8# is best in my opinion ... the 4# was a test anchor as Sag...

Re: SageCat cruise report

Day 10 - Fisherman Bay to Anacortes - I had shared my tales of Holly B’s bakery with the girls the previous evening, so we all got up early and made a pilgrimage to this baking holy site in the morning. After again being dazzled with their confectioner’s wizardry, we spent a few more hours exploring...

Re: SageCat cruise report

Day 9 - Roche Harbor to Fisherman Bay This hazy, smoky morning began with a shower at the marina, a quick coffee for all of us and a stop by our friend’s boat to pick up our battery before departing on our longest sail of the trip so far. My wife had visited Lopez Village about five years ago for a ...

Re: SageCat cruise report

Day 8 - Exploring Roche Harbor The wind forecast or the day had called for a sustained breeze of about 17 knots from the north. This, I figured, was probably not the best type of day for us to make our longest jump from Roche Harbor, all the way back to Fisherman Bay on Lopez Island, so we made the ...

Day 7 - Jones Island to Roche Harbor - We paddled ashore in the morning with our breakfast supplies and cooked a mountain of a meal. Eggs, hash browns, warmed tortilla shells, coffee and some bananas really started the day off on the right foot. After cleaning up and taking our cooking gear back to ...

Re: SageCat cruise report

Day 5 - Cody's crew arrives! The arrival of the ferry on Sunday afternoon was a spectacle to behold. The cars lining up to board the ferry were jockeying for position and more than once the woman directing cars had to yell at drivers who had an agenda of their own. Stressed looking parents were tryi...

Re: SageCat cruise report

Day 4 of Cody's cruise - [quote]The alarm on my phone awakened me at 6:15 so as to get a good start on arriving at Holly B’s Bakery somewhere near their 7 o’clock opening time. I dressed for the day and paddled across the bay under yet another crystal clear sky and steady breezes. The bakery already...
