And we're off to Seattle...

Departed 6:48am from Oakland, CA. I'll keep providing updates as connectivity allows. Right now we're heading to Bodega Bay. Click image for larger version

Run fast and far. I would plan to spend Wed night in harbor. Thursday looks like a good day to lay up. Friday looks like a new window to carry you home.

Have an eventful but safe trip. Let us know what the rolling waves are like off of the Oregon coast.

At Bodega. Seas were essentially dead calm up to this point. Beautiful day.

You didn’t say you hired Jack Defriel. You are in good hands. He knows all the harbors up the coast including the short cut past Tatoosh Island.

About 10 miles from Point Arena. Little more windy, but still nice enough to be operating from the flybridge, and seas are still flat. Just a mellow swell, maybe 1 foot with a period of 5 seconds. Hard to beat that!

After we left Bodega Bay, a report came over the VHF from the sheriff there to the Coast Guard letting them know someone spotted a 22 foot Great White off the swimming area at Bodega. All I could think was "we're gonna need a bigger boat..."

I'm currently on my 2 hour shift, then again from midnight to 3am for my 3 on, 6 off shift.

We're going to get dinner started soon. Spaghetti with meat sauce and a salad.

I typically don't get seasick but there is a slight underlying queasiness I've been feeling. Strange given the mellow conditions. Fortunately, I got a Scopolamine prescription and popped the patch on about 3 hours ago and it's helping.

When 3am hits, I'm sure I'll pretty much collapse regardless.

Michael, how about sharing some info about your crew, their ages and experience, etc. Also, how about lots more pictures? Your weather looks perfect, good job picking the weather to cruise in.

Nice!

While you’re transiting north, look for a 46’ Nordhavn named Northern Ranger I- she is about 70 miles behind you headed to Seattle.
