You have experience in sailing. Why not take a boat ride and explore the magnificent San Juan Islands next summer? It could be a wonderful adventure for you and your family.
There are many different ways to spend a sailing holiday. You can rent a yacht and sail it yourself, or you can rent one. If you are not comfortable enough with your navigation skills, the traffic jam will take care of your daily boat run, leaving you free to do whatever you like. The skier will help you get used to the new yacht or area, he will give you tips on sailing, and he will answer any questions while sailing. Another option is to join the flotilla. Many flotilla routes include special events such as beach parties, fun races, and the opportunity to mingle with other sailors.
The sheltered aqueducts, bays and fjords, which extend from southern Seattle to British Columbia and south-eastern Alaska, are some of the world’s most beautiful sailing sites. The Pacific Ocean, which connects the Pacific Ocean through the Strait of Juan de Fuca in the Pacific Ocean, offers about 300 islands and about 2,000 miles of coastline. The islands of San Juan are the most common charter of the Pujet Voice in the northwest of the Pacific Ocean. This cluster of inhabited islands and worthless cliffs is located about 60 nautical miles from Seattle. With more than 200 rocky islands and dozens of state parks left untouched, this is a good charter for beginners. The waters are reasonably protected even by storms outside the Pacific Ocean.
The historic seaside town of Anacortes is a one and a half hour drive north of Seattle. Along with several marinas surrounded by water, Anacortes has rightly earned its title of “San Juan Islands Gate.” All the beauty and intrigue of the islands of San Juan and the Gulf Coast are located on the seafront. The weather is mostly mild all year round. Summers are mostly sunny, with temperatures below 70 to 80 degrees (19-25 C).
Most of the Pacific Northwest is located in the “rain shadow” of the high mountains, blocking many of the weather systems that leave the Pacific Ocean. The result is that in some areas, rainwater can be as high as 20 inches per year. From May to October, the winds are mostly moderate (6 – 18 knots). This varies by location and day by day, as more fresh weather occurs in more open areas and lighter and more variable winds occur on the islands.
