Manzanita Bay, south of Agate Pass is a great little gem, a good place, close to Seattle for a weekend raft-up with friends. A Polynesian potluck is planned, and if a serious Northerly is expected, we will go to Port Madison. Anyone remember when Abby wanted to go swimming there?

He is also the father of a 4-year-old. Join us for a fun evening! RACE TO ALASKA - NO MOTORS, NO SUPPORT, ALL THE WAY TO ALASKA 750 miles of 50 degree water with guarantied blisters, mild hypothermia, and the cathartic elation that comes from accomplishing something, others would call impossible. Nothing has generated more great sea stories, in a shorter time than this race! What a hoot!
