Into Juan de Fuca

Saturday July 12
Depart: anchorage near Diana Island, Deer Group 0645
Calm, clear, 18 C. Forecast NW winds 10-20 today
We are motoring south right now, heading towards Victoria. We are hoping the winds pick up so we can do some sailing, right now we only have about 2-3 knots, not enough to bother with the sails.
Arrive: Sooke Basin 2135 Lat: 48 22.19 Lon: 123 40.81
Trip Log: 844.5nm Day: 84.5 nm
We had a great sail the second half of the day... winds picked up to 25 ++ knots right behind us and we sailed smoothly all the way to Sooke, reaching speeds of 10 knots on the downside of the waves! We couldn't have asked for a better sail.
