San Juan Is

At the end of the summer we drove to a port in Bellingham, Washington. It was a five-hour drive. On the way we stopped at Hope to get something to eat. After about another hour and a half we were in Bellingham. When we got there it was almost dark so we unloaded all our things onto the catamaran we were renting. A catamaran is a boat that looks like two sailboats side by side. After we unloaded all our things we went to bed. The next day we ate breakfast at the Bellingham Yacht Club. About an hour later we set sail. We went to lots of different islands such as Orcas Island, Sucia Island and San Juan Island. My favourite place was Friday Harbour. One thing I liked about Friday Harbour was the huge blackberry bush we found. I learned a lot about the San Juan Islands. It was the longest boat trip I had ever been on.

  1. Hi Enzo, Thanks for sharing your amazing sailing experience! Were the winds strong enough for you to maintain a steady pace the entire trip? What kind of knots did you find helpful for mooring the boat? Would advice would you give to someone thinking of sailing on a catamaran? Ms. Marianne

  2. I had no idea you were a sailor, Enzo! I finished my second round of lessons this summer and intend to take more. It sounds as if you had a fabulous time!

  3. Good job Enzo! It was a great trip :-)!! Thanks fr writing about it.
