Cruising San Juan Islands to Desolation Sound Tech Talk

  • 12 Apr 2023
  • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Vashon Library meeting room

Registration is closed

Let’s talk about the world-famous cruising grounds right in our back yard – the San Juan and Canadian Gulf Islands and north to Desolation Sound.  The barriers to entry are not insurmountable, but some knowledge of the straits, narrows and rapids in this area are necessary.  The rocks and coves, picturesque and inviting, also represent hazards to be avoided.  That is the beauty of this cruising area – be aware of and manage the risks and enjoy the rewards!

This Tech Talk will discuss routes, wind and weather considerations, dealing with currents and narrows and those ports of call and spectacular anchorages that grace the cover of cruising guides.  We will cover the area from Anacortes to Desolation Sound, including crossing the Strait of Georgia.

Be prepared to share your own San Juan / Gulf Islands / Desolation Sound travel tips at this Tech Talk at 6PM on Wednesday, April 12 in the Vashon Library meeting room.
