Customs the Strait of Juan de Fuca

Oh, Canada!

Saturday, August 22, 2009S.V. CAMBRIA

We left Port Townsend around noon to make the best use of the currents and ended up taking a beating for an hour or so. What little wind there was opposed the three knot current stacking up the seas to over three feet with a very short interval between waves causing us to fall off one straight into the face of the next and lifting us even higher through the next wave before crashing us down again taking water over the bow up to the dodger. Things finally settled down around 1:30 pm and we were able to make Bedwell Harbour for the night and checked back into Canada!
