September 11, 2007 PORT ANGELES TO NEAH BAY

Left Port Angeles at 08:25 PDT, intending to exit Jaun de Fuca Straight and head south into the Pacific.

Lots of Coast Guard activity. We wondered about this until we remembered that it was 911.

Motored for most of the day, with winds increasing from the WSW after 16:00.

At 16:30 a SW gail hit us at the west entrance to JDF Straight and the fog rolled in. We sought shelter in Neah Bay for the night. The wind was so strong in the bay we let out 200 ft of chain in 20 - 30 ft depth to be comfortable that we would not drag.
