Everyone's Travel Club here with a few posts this week from our summer man-cruise. Yep, that's right, we cut the lines, left the wives at home (except my wife had to stay with friends because we took the house), and sailed ol' Kingsley girl North to Port Ludlow (just South from Port Townsend). We set out to do manly things - eat, drink, and be merry...with a little poker mixed in. Falling asleep early because we were so tired from a day of sailing wasn't part of the plan, but let's stick to the highlights from day 1!
We shoved off on an overcast summer day with typical NW summer light winds. They picked up as we got just North of the Edmonds ferries.
As we rounded Point No Point to head West we had some great sailing. The waves chilled out a little and the wind was on our beam (Kingsley likes that).
There was even time for shenanigans.
We used our radar a lot.
And eventually made it to the Port Ludlow Marina (6-7 hours sailing the whole way with the wind against us). Stay tuned to the blog this week for more man-cruise adventures!
