What bodies of water do you sail?

Postby CaptainScott » Mon Oct 01, 2018 10:22 am

Just curious where does everyone sail?

We tend to sail in Possession Sound Near Everett Wa. It is in the North end of Puget sound.
We day sail a lot and do a lot of crabbing in this area!

Our yearly vacation takes us North to the San Juan Islands and Gulf Islands. These trips find us in the Straights of Juan De Fuca and Straights of Georgia as well as all the waters in between. We'll take 2-3 weeks off work and just head North! LOL!


Where sail you?

Death's Door was originally "named" by the Pottawatomies from a war with the Winnebagos when hundreds of warriors died crossing it with canoes (pre 1676). They told the story to explorer Lasalle (1676) who marked his early maps as "Port des Mortes" which still appears on many maps. Today it's called "Death's Door" and is the origin of the name of our county (Door County, WI). It was treacherous for sailing schooners in the late 1800s and early 1900s due to currents, fog, & shoals resulting in hundreds of shipwrecks. But the name comes from before that.

I am still a newb as I just purchased my first sailboat this past summer. And I happen to live in Michigan. I consider myself to be one of the lucky ones, because we have the largest fresh water sanctuary in the world in the Great Lakes.
So far I have only sailed out into lake Michigan outta South Haven. I am hoping next summer to get out there and go from marina to marina.
