FROM THE HELM

Fiddler's Green

I brace myself on the decks of the Adventuress, Washington’s official educational tallship, with the peak halyard in my hands. She is en route to a recent Tacoma’s Festival of Sail, and a dozen others are conscripted to help me defeat Norris Comer the gaff in this timeless, salty tug of war. We are hoisting the second largest mains’l on the West Coast, after all. “Ready on the peak!” the first mate calls. “Read on the peak!” the assembled crew bellow back in unison. “Heave!” he commands. “Heave!” we respond and haul in line to the tune of the sea shanty Fiddler’s Green. The sail rises to join the American flag where it waves in the light breeze. The sun burns through the clouds as Seattle fades away to our port and we are bathed in golden light. I think of July boating on the Sound and can hardly resist my excitement. After all, meteorologists joke that the Seattle summer truly begins on July 12 when the summer weather pattern tends to finally setup. Fiddler’s Green expresses my July boating anticipation best: “Wrap me up in me oil-skin and jumper, No more on the docks I’ll be seen! Just tell me old shipmates, I’m taking a trip mates, And I’ll see you some day in Fiddler’s Green!”

PUBLISHER Michelle Zeasman-Gibbon michelle@nwyachting.com

Wherever your personal Fiddler’s Green is, we’ve got something for you in this issue. Enclosed are features ranging from navigation history and a Brad Baker master navigator/Vic-Maui Yacht race profile, to a cruising tour of the Central Sound one waterfront brewery at a time and a spotlight on the inspiring accomplishments of Washington Sea Grant. I took a trip to Roche Harbor, one part old-timey village and other part San Juan-themed Disneyland, for our monthly Ports of Call destination piece where I share my impressions. Kris and Kimberly Henderson, the husband and wife duo living out of their Salmon Bay shop, show us the high-tech carbon fiber boats (and top-secret spaceship components) they make in Ask the Experts. Our columnists also kick it into high gear, whether it’s Kevin Klein talking salmon fishing in Kevin’s Catch or Bridget Charters giving us a crash course on galley meal prep in Galley Gourmet. As always, be sure to tune into our ongoing monthly giveaway in celebration of our 30th birthday (page 33) and to send us entries for our Pets on Boats contest (page 91). This month we’re giving away an aerial tour of Seattle by Kenmore Air! See details within. From our helm to yours, have a wet and wild July. Regardless of what side of the Pig War you would’ve fought on, we wish you a happy Independence Day and Canada Day. The days are long and goods times abound. If you see me out on the water, don’t hesitate to say ahoy!

Double Take:

R2AK: Thrills and Chills

Departing Port Townsend bright and early at 0430 hours..

The Northwest's Wildest Race Rides Again By Norris Comer

The streets of Port Townsend are tense at 04:00 hours this race day. The third annual R2AK Race to Alaska, the iconic engineless “America’s Cup for dirtbags” to Ketchikan, is to begin. The weather is calm and the horizon a gray void where the fog blends sky and sea. The racers, steeled and anxious, gather quietly offshore in front of a boisterous (and warm) landlubber crowd. The disparate craft ranged from performance trimarans to paddleboards, from custom monohulls to rowing shells. A volunteer paddleboarder makes his rounds with hot oatmeal for the contestants. As per custom, the horn blasts to the brassy songs of the Soviet National Choir, and the decidedly ragtag

12 NORTHWEST YACHTING || JULY 2017

assortment of ambitious watercraft are off to the cheers from the crowd. R2AK 2017 is underway. North or bust. Stage 1 of the course from Port Townsend to Victoria is generally regarded as a sort of filter; vessels that can’t cross the Straits of Juan de Fuca probably shouldn’t press on to the more remote waters of B.C. and Alaska. Day One, June 8, is full of surprises as the low winds of the morning favor human-peddled craft. For a stretch of the race, paddleboarding teams even lead the pack. The first craft to reach Victoria is the French double rowing shell of team Liteboat crewed by Dominique Preney and Mattieu Bonnier. They beat the heavy 30-knot plus winds

that ravage the course in the afternoon and cause some teams to wash out. “This is really incredible, no one predicted this,” Race Boss Daniel Evans later commented in a press release. While human power took Leg 1 of the race, the ultimate winners would once again be the performance trimarans for the remaining 710-mile Leg 2 from Victoria to Ketchikan. The winning team of R2AK 2017 is team Pure & Wild/Freeburd with an impressive time of four days, three hours, and five minutes. The racers aboard, Tripp, Trevor, and Chris Burd, are brothers and rightfully claim the $10,000 first prize famously nailed to a piece of wood. In second place, team Big Broderna with racers Sean Huston, Nels Standberg, Mars Le Baron, and Lars Strandberg arrived in Ketchikan a mere six minutes after Pure & Wild/Freeburd. As is R2AK custom, the second place team receives a set of R2AK steak knives. R2AK is a unique race in that the top finishers conclude only the beginning chapters of the race’s story. Many teams will continue the slog north through the wilderness in the weeks to come and more possible record-breaking firsts tease race fans on the sidelines. Will the paddleboarders finish the entire course and make history? For those interested, r2ak.com is the online resource to tune into. A race tracker updates team positions constantly, and exciting blog posts are the daily norm. Although the finish line has been crossed, it’s very likely that the best stories are yet to unfold.

Cruising for a Cause

ORCA School By Greg Van Belle

Students aboard the Phocoena gather data.

It’s a warm but cloudy Friday morning, and I am drifting along in Port Gardner on the Phocoena, a 34’ custom-built research vessel that would make any boat fanatic drool. All around me, high school students are taking water samples, tracking weather and sea conditions, collecting plankton,

and counting marine birds and mammals. Captain Ardi Kveven watches these young scientists go about their work while the Phocoena slowly slides along with the one knot current. I just try to stay out of the way. This data gathering cruise is part of the Ocean Research College Academy of which Kveven is the executive director. ORCA is a unique program offered by Everett Community College that accepts high school students for a two-year learning community focused on marine biology and environmental studies. After a competitive application process and a few college placement tests, qualified students can complete all their required high school coursework while also earning up to 90 college credits and an associate’s degree in their two years with the ORCA program. ORCA admits up to 60 high school juniors each year, and while not all of them aspire to be marine biologists, many do go on to advanced study in the field. ORCA teaches academic and interpersonal skills needed for the next phase of their scholarly and professional lives. These are highly motivated, academically minded young men and women participating in the program, and from the second I step aboard, I am impressed by their professionalism. The scope of their research is impressive for any undergraduate student, and they are immersed in meaningful, applicable studies with far-reaching applications. Today’s trip is part of the program’s ongoing State of Possession Sound (SOPS) research project that monitors biodiversity and other markers of the relative health of Continued on Page 18

Cruising for a Cause: ORCA School the Puget Sound ecosystem. They are gathering plankton samples – the beginning of the complex food chain in Puget Sound – and other data relevant to the study. Student research projects related to this sample collection include studying heavy metal concentrations in sensitive eel grass beds, heavy metal deposits related to Snohomish River discharge, and plankton density and larval fish abundance in Possession Sound. As I look around the Phocoena, I see the next generation of environmental stewards and marine experts. It is impossible not to be impressed. Coleman, a young man just finishing his first year at ORCA, aspires to be a captain one day, and is carefully planning his academic and sea time in anticipation of applying to the California Maritime Academy. Kveven appoints him navigator for today’s cruise, and he keeps a watchful eye on the water as we move from collection site to collection site. After collecting samples near shore at Howarth Park, just

south of the Everett Marina, we steam west to the Mount Baker Terminal, where parts for Boeing jets are offloaded from barges. Farther west, on the shores of South Whidbey Island, ORCA owns a stretch of undeveloped beachfront, a gift from parents of an ORCA graduate. Students use these tidelands for eel grass studies and other sampling, and Kveven hopes to soon install a permanent data-gathering buoy at the site. In all, the students use five data collection sites in Possession Sound. These are not typical science fair projects. The data can inform fisheries, environmental groups, tideland stewards, and transportation projects for generations to

come. Partnerships with the City of Everett, University of Washington, and Shoreline Community College bolster the research capabilities and reach of the school’s work. Funded through a combination of hard-won grants, state funds, and student fees, ORCA’s facilities at the Everett Marina include the Phocoena – built in 2014 by Bean Marine Fabrication in Clarkston, Washington – and a state-of-theart lab, which includes a 120-gallon sea water aquarium, five classrooms, and a fully stocked oceanography research lab. The Phocoena was the dream of Kveven, the executive director and lead grant writer of the ORCA program. After years of making do by leasing time on the Hat Island Ferry, this custom vessel is a dream platform for data collection and field work. A bow door opens for beach landings and sample gathering, cranes are installed for lowering and lifting instruments and fresh and salt water washdowns are installed in the gunwales. There are tables on deck and in the

It is truly an upgrade from the 12-foot inflatable the school relied on before a generous grant from the National Science Foundation allowed them to purchase the vessel. If you are out in Possession Sound on a Friday morning, keep your eye out for the Phocoena and her crew of young scientists. They might just be conducting the research that helps keep our marine ecosystem viable for coming generations.

Northwest Boat Travel for Travelling Northwest Boaters By Jonathan Schewe

What do you do when you can’t find a publication that has the information you need? Start one! That’s what long-time Northwest boaters Phil and Gwen Cole did in 1978 when they launched the guide Northwest Boat Travel. “The first issue with 72 pages looked more like a magazine than a book,” says long-time editor Kathy Newman. In addition to the requisite boating information on facilities and services, early issues included articles like The Move to Diesel: What’s It All About? “Guess we know how that turned out,” she quips. From the beginning, NBT was a labor of love: “Gwen and Phil made updates in person and on the phone,” says Newman. “Phil, Gwen, and their staff worked countless hours on and off the water keeping the guide current and filled with useful information for boaters. Today we have the added convenience of the internet. But we still call all of the phone numbers to make sure they are current and still visit places in person. In addition, we email all of our contacts to verify and update information we print each year.” Today, after 39 years, contributions from more than 300 individual readers, trade associations, tourism boards, recreational

groups, and government agencies combine to make this comprehensive reference a must-have member of any boater’s library – on or off the water. Each issue of NBT is divided into 20 chapters arranged by six sections from Shelton and Olympia, Washington, on the south, to Glacier Bay and Sitka, Alaska, on the north and includes information on both Juan de Fuca Strait and the west coast of Vancouver Island. The layout is crisp and each chapter is prefaced by an interpretive map with numbered major destinations. Features, attractions, facilities, and services are included and identified by symbols and icons. Major destination headings include reference numbers for NOAA and Canadian Hydrographic Service charts, and most marina locations include lat/lon coordinates. Landmarks and navigation hazards on many routes and approaches unfamiliar to visiting boaters are described using both local knowledge and anecdotal experience. These accounts are presented as an over-

view but not intended as a substitute for either detailed charts or sailing directions, and the personal insights encourage every boater to exercise prudence and caution. At the end of every chapter is an alphabetical list of essential services and contact information. Located between chapters seven and eight is a 12-page section of information on customs and immigration regulations, chart sources, weather and marine parks information, communications regulations, commercial vessel traffic information, and short courses on basic boat handling and anchoring techniques. The pages immediately preceding the comprehensive index include distance tables and protocol for issuing distress communications. Inspired as a crowdsource exercise decades before crowdsourcing was a “thing,” NBT is at once cruising guide, tourist brochure, chamber of commerce pamphlet, chart reference, and history lesson. And, for the price of a few lattes, an outstanding value that deserves a place in every boater’s wheelhouse.

The Tacoma Festival of Sail, held June 15 to 18, was a rare opportunity to see many of the great historic tall ships of the West Coast in one place. Some of the iconic ships present were Washington’s official educational tall ship, the Adventuress, the Lady Washington (aka, Pirates of the Caribbean’s Black Pearl), Hawaiian Chieftain of the Gary’s Harbor Historical Seaport, Zodiac, and many more. We had the privilege of sailing from the Shilshole Bay Marina to the Thea Foss Waterway aboard the Adventuress for delivery, an experience too magical to objectively report. There is an element of intangible wonder that is associated with tall ships, best

exemplified when the Adventuress killed the engine after everybody aboard (including press) hoisted the sails. “It’s a tradition on board to have a moment of silence after we hoist the sails and kill the engine,” says Captain Rachel Slattery as we enjoy the reflective moment on the water.

A small number of vintage power vessels were also on display, like the MV Lotus.

From the smell of the wood burning grill, to the swirl of world-class wine in the glass, to the first bite from our fresh northwest Tastes from the Sea, Dahlia Lounge is the quintessential Seattle restaurant experience. 47' Bayliner 4788 Pilot House 2001

At the Festival of Sail itself, educational seminars were loaded with fascinating information while food vendors and live music turned the extraordinary gathering into a true festival. Of course the iconic giant inflatable duck that dwarfed most of the tall ships, was in attendance. Ship tours and day sails gave visitors intimate chances to experience the wood-planked nautical wonders on a personal level. What life changing moments, impossible to quantify, took place? How many revelers, both young and old, fell in love with the sea? The event took full advantage of Tacoma’s Thea Foss Waterway and the waterfront esplanade. Tall ships were moored to the south near the Museum of Glass all the way north near the Foss Seaport Museum and Rock the Dock Pub & Grill (next to the vendors). Tacoma has certainly emerged as a real boating powerhouse. We look forward to next year’s festival with great excitement. It

Seaport accredits the Hawaiian Chieftain as the sole reason why 35,000 visitors to the Seaport a year discover tall ships and sailing. What’s more, the charismatic ship has doubled the number of participants, whether they are kids aboard for adventure learning or adults developing job skills. The ship also travels up and down the West Coast and serves a purported annual audience of over 70,000 in California, Oregon, and Washington. “Can you breathe new life into her?” Bednarik challenges in the Seaport’s call for help. Will you respond? The urgent upgrades require an additional $43,500 for Phase 1 of Project Overhaul, which includes replacing her shafts and propellers, rebuilding the anchor windlass, painting, and rigging work.

Cocktail of the Month

Fourth of July What’s better than celebrating America’s birthday on a boat? Once you’ve found your moorings to best see the fireworks and turn off that ignition for the night, why not responsibly enjoy some red, white, and blue libations? The Fourth of July cocktail is a layered shooter drink freshly squeezed from the Stars and Stripes itself. Make a bunch of them beforehand and tuck away in the fridge for the evening. These little headturning drinks say America’s birthday like no other.

• 1 part grenadine • 1 part Blue Curacao • 1 part Cream or Vodka (depending on mood or availability) Directions: You’ll ideally have a shooter glass on hand to layer the three ingredients in the order from the top of the recipe to the bottom. If you’ve never layered a drink before, it looks more intimidating than it is. Simply pour in the grenadine and angle a spoon against the inside of the shooter glass over the grenadine layer. Gently pour Blue Curacao over the spoon to fill up to the twothirds mark of the shooter glass. When done properly, the blue liqueur will sit on top of the red grenadine. Do the same with the cream or vodka on top to finish. These are not for sipping, drink it all in one go! We’re thirsty for more recipes, so send yours to editorial@nwyachting.com for a chance to appear in the next issue.

Duke’s Chowder House is a local seafood-themed establishment with six existing locations at Alki, Green Lake, Kent Station, Lake Union, Southcenter, and Ruston Way. The restaurant is the creation of Duke Moscrip, a self-proclaimed seafood sleuth searching for the perfect meal. Duke’s Chowder House is committed to serving up sustainably caught local seafood and has garnered recognition from organizations like Smart Catch, which gave Duke’s a rating of 100% volume compliance. Moscrip himself often takes to the fishing grounds of Alaska and Washington as he tinkers with his recipes and creates new ones. Moscrip’s cookbook, As Wild As It Gets, is also a Pacific Northwest cuisine resource worth referencing. To learn more about the restaurant or buy the book ($49.95), check out dukeschowderhouse.com.

Olympia Opportunities A new fuel dock is scheduled to be built in Olympia, Washington’s Swantown Marina nestled with walking distance from the heart of downtown. Although an exact date of operation has not been announced, the announcement is welcomed by boaters who had their eyes on the fuel gauge for their South Sound trips. Olympia-bound boaters traditionally had to commute to nearby locations like the Port Plaza Guest Dock to top off the tanks. The Swantown Marina in Budd Inlet is a popular choice for boaters visiting Olympia and cruising the South Sound.

Swantown Marina.

While slips are typically available on a first-come, first-served basis, the marina recommends calling ahead for busy summer weekends. You can learn more about the marina at portolympia. com or call at 360-528-8049. Olympia itself has many unique attractions ranging from the Olympia Farmers Market, Hands on Children Museum, Wet Science Center, walking trails, waterfront restaurants, and much more. If you haven’t yet checked out Washington's Capitol building by water, it better be on your bucket list. Check out experienceolympia.com to see what events are on their calendar.

LETTERS We here at Northwest Yachting love hearing from our readers. Below are a few correspondences we’ve received. If you’ve got two cents to share, feel free to send us a snail mail letter to Northwest Yachting Magazine, 7342 15th Ave NW, Seattle Washington, or an email to editorial@nwyachting.com.

Get your Adventuress

Dear Northwest Yachting, Wow, what an article on the Adventuress!!! I was wondering if you where able to have a copy shipped to myself and Dorothy as this is a treasure? Thanks for your great journalism in telling the story about the ship and the programs. —Regards, Charlotte Krebs Thank you so much for your kind words about the article, Charlotte! As one of the first Girl Scouts to sail aboard Adventuress, your testimonial really means a lot. We're so glad that you felt that the article did justice to both the ship and the wonderful programs that Sound Experience puts together. Hope you and Dorothy both enjoy your copies of the magazine. —Ed.

Efficient

Copper Quality Dear Northwest Yachting, Page 28 of your June 2017 issue mentions to drink Moscow Mules in an “iconic copper mug” but it doesn’t mention why. Here’s why: if you drink a mule from a mug with an interior made of copper it reacts with the ginger beer and gives an added tang on the back of your throat. Copper on the outside doesn’t do anything. It could be solid gold, but if the inside isn’t copper, it just isn’t worth the cost of the mug. —Sincerely, Paul and Marlene

2018 Maritimo M54 The brand-new 2018 Maritimo 54 recently arrived in the Pacific Northwest from Down Under, ready to hit the water running. This modern, sporty luxury cruiser is the larger sister ship of the successful Maritimo 48 and comes with more space and features. Immediately notable design elements of the exterior are the spacious, fully enclosed flybridge and skylounge aimed at enabling year-long boating. The flybridge and skylounge are almost fully enclosed with glass, including a retractable sunroof, to really let in the views. A covered “Romeo and Juliet” deck aft has a railing with an array of rod holders for those after fresh seafood. An internal, enclosed staircase leads one between the flybridge and the salon below. Why brave the elements between the two nav stations?

The main level cockpit is covered with bench seating against the transom. A hydraulic swim platform aft is accessible via walkways on both the port and starboard sides of the island-style transom. The deep well walkaround decks are a great consideration that will make hustling for fenders and dock lines easier and safer. The interior has plenty more to boast about with a full-beam Master Suite and fully-loaded aft galley. The large, generously windowed salon was specifically designed to give every seat an outdoor view, so there shouldn’t be a bad seat to be found. The bi-fold doors are a nice touch to open the salon to the cockpit. The mezzanine level above the master has lockers, drawers, a full-length mirror, and vanity. Guests are accommodated in a forward suite, bunks to starboard, and a day head easily accessed by both areas.

The Maritimo 54 is meant to be a true oceangoing vessel with a reported (by the manufacturer) cruising speed of over 25 knots and a top speed of around 30 knots. At the 25-knot cruising range, the M54 is supposed to be able to travel over 500 nautical miles. When cruising at the more conservative seven knots, the range goes up to over 2,000 nautical miles. Whether you’re looking for speed for a day trip or ready to put in some miles on an extended passage, the 2018 Maritimo M54 has got you covered. She is built for both fair seas and foul. Contact local dealer Silver Seas Yachts if interested. More information is available at silverseasyachts.com. Contact Silver Seas for pricing.

Jeanneau 349 The Jeanneau 349 performance cruiser is fast becoming one of the company’s most successful builds, with over 500 hulls sold. In fact, the demand for the popular Eurocruiser led to the construction of a new facility solely dedicated to the 349. Like most production builds, it benefits from annual tweaks to the design, and within that context, local broker Marine Servicenter announces that the 2017 Jeanneau 349s have newly arrived at their docks. There’s plenty to like on the exterior. The dual helm layout allows for a generously sized cockpit complete with dropdown transom swim step aft. The bow-

sprit comes with rigging for a Code 0 or asymmetrical spinnakers for those who like to fly a kite. Notable also is that the German mainsheet leads aft through ceramic rings for complete control from the cockpit helm winches. Below the waterline, the 349 has a deep fin keel and a three-blade propeller driven by a 3GM Yanmar inboard diesel engine. The dual helms lead to corresponding dual rudders, good for racing and safety redundancy. The interiors vary by build, but the two-cabin, one-head model is the one currently available in the Pacific Northwest. There’s quite

a bit of space down there, and notably, a large shower stall aft of the head with over six feet of standing headroom. Not bad for a 34-foot sailboat! The Jeanneau 349 offers a lot of accommodations and versatil-

ity in a relatively small package, and it isn’t hard to imagine why they are so popular. If interested, contact the local dealer, Marine Servicenter (marinesc.com). The model currently at their docks is listed at $179,885.

Sabre 45 Salon Express Although there’s no shortage of Pacific Northwest boat-building pride, it’s healthy to let the eye wander to the nautical designs of New England every once in a while to expand one’s horizons. Sabre Yachts of Maine have been building luxury motoryachts in the Downeast style since 1970, and the first Sabre 45 Salon Express will be arriving to the West Coast soon for a public debut at the September Boats Afloat Show in South Lake Union. The 45 Salon Express certainly emphasizes fine accommodations with two separate staterooms and two en suite heads. The master stateroom lies forward and contains a spacious island berth, and the accompanying head has a separate shower stall with custom tiling. The large salon has plenty of seating around an L-shaped settee to starboard, and the galley has just about all the comforts of land.

The exterior has many notable features that will be appreciated by guests and crew alike. The hardtop has an extension that can be pulled over the cockpit seating when the inevitable Northwest drizzle strikes. Farther aft, the generous swim step beckons on those warm summer days. The foredeck is also quite large for a boat this size and is the best seat in the house while underway. The 45

Salon Express is propelled by state-of-the-art twin Volvo IPS-600 pod drives with D6 435 horse-power engines. The Sabre 45 Salon Express is a New England looker that should fit right in here in the Pacific Northwest. If interested, contact Bellingham Yacht Sales (open in Bellingham and Everett, see bellinghamyachts.com). Contact them for pricing.

One such boat is the 2018 R-27 from Ranger Tugs, the builder’s next generation of popular cruisers with multiple orders already billed. At first impression, the R-27 clearly builds off Ranger Tugs pocket motorcruiser ethos with some modern flair. The pilothouse and cabin is mostly glass, from the curved front window to the overhead atrium, which really lets in the light. The modern helm seats two, and the skipper has a standard Yamaha F300 electronically controlled outboard engine and bow thruster at his or her fingertips. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Ranger Tug without exceptional accommodations for its size. The galley is fully loaded with a

Picnic Launch SPECS LOA: 29’ 6” • Beam: 9’ 6” Displacement, Full Load: 6,400 lbs. Draft: 2’ 2” Tankage (Fuel/Fresh/Black): 180 gals./10 gals./12.4 gals. Local Dealer: Emerald Pacific Yachts, 206-587-0660

The waterways of the Netherlands are as picturesque as they come, complete with Dutch windmills, tulip fields, and wooden clogs as far as the eye can see. Why not bring some of that Dutch magic to the states? Enter the Picnic Launch from Beaver, an imported 29-foot launch from Holland whose old world, shippy good looks are easy to identify at the docks. Teak planked settees with builtin storage and exquisite mahogany joinery framework set the tone aboard, and eight passengers can be seated comfortably for the ride. What’s more, a thick rope rubric runs almost completely around the boat, sparing only the gentle tumblehome at the transom with a swim platform. The expansive cockpit features a stylish wood center console helm and access to the companionway to berths below forward. The Picnic Launch is not just looks, however. The Europeans love their gadgets, and the Picnic Launch is designed with ample space to pro-

vide digital engine instrumentation, electronic engine controls, and more at the helm. The craft is powered by twin 220-horsepower Volvo or Yanmar diesel engines that push the Picnic Launch at a sporting maximum speed of 38 knots (according to the manufacturer). In this era of production runabouts that increasingly look the same, Beaver’s Picnic Launch dares to embrace a completely different look and feel. Perhaps “Picnic Launch” will become a class unto itself if this catches on? The Beaver Picnic Launch is sold in America exclusively by Emerald Pacific Yachts (emeraldpacificyachts.com) in Seattle, Washington. Contact Emerald Pacific for pricing and details.

Walker Board AIRIS HardTop Paddleboards from Walker Bay || $999.00 Walker Bay is a popular brand synonymous with inflatable sport boats and tenders as well as rigid-hull dinghies that are complemented by sail kits — but paddleboards? As it turns out, yes. The AIRIS inflatable paddleboard (iSUP) line from Walker Bay has been circulating successfully for the last few years and we finally got to check one out, the AIRIS HardTop SUV 11. The verdict? These are some rugged, versatile boards with many features that boaters on the go will appreciate. One instantly notable feature is that all AIRIS boards fold comfortably into a backpack, and at 26.5 pounds of weight, transport of the SUV 11 is quite manageable. The collapsible paddle not only is easy to travel with, but is also compatible with interchangeable blades, depending on the paddler’s preferences. Once out of the bag, the ruggedness of the board really

comes through, especially on the HardTop SUV 11 version that we tested. Walker Bay clearly utilized some of their tested building techniques for their paddleboards, and the patented AirWeb six-inch construction is meant to achieve greater stiffness by accommodating higher air pressures. What’s more, the surface of the board is rigid with EVA foam steps where one’s feet usually are planted, which is good for performance. A detachable skeg also helps give this iSUP rigid-board-like tracking performance. Pragmatic features like storage bungees, a surf leash att achment ring, carrying handles, and more abound on the SUV 11. The material also feels tough, and is assuredly less prone to damage than the average foam board. The SUV 11 can even be converted into a sort of kayak with a backseat accessory sold separately.

All in all, the SUV 11 left us with a very positive impression and spoke well for the AIRIS line as a whole. The ease of transport plus rugged, stiff design may just make the HardTop SUV 11 iSUP a boater’s go to for trips to the San Juans and beyond. What’s more, they are designed and built in North America. More information is available at walkerbay.com. The Hardtop SUV 11 is listed at $999.

It's not exactly tiny, but the SUV 11 isn't hard to carry when folded up and packed.

Finish That Brightwork

Awlgrip® Awlwood || $39.99 - 339.99

You’ve sanded and sanded. And sanded. Now it’s time to bring out your boat’s glorious natural exterior woodwork, just in time for summer! Awlgrip ® Awlwood (from AkzoNobel) is an industry standard exterior wood finish system composed of Primer and Clear Finish. You’ll save time and work because Awlwood has a high-building, fast-curing formulation allowing multiple applications per day. The manufacturer says this product system gives the same great results over a wide range of application temperature and humidity conditions, and that the finish remains highly flexible over time, giving toughness and abrasion resistance to your woodwork’s coating. Awlwood uses Flex-Link™ technology to lock directly onto the wood cellular structure, even on tropical hardwoods. Apply Awlwood with spray, brush, or roller. To enhance your boat’s woodwork species, the primer element comes in clear, red tone, and yellow tone: choose gloss or satin for the finish. The system is said to last up to four times longer compared to traditional varnishes, so take a time and money-saving look at awlgrip.com for product safety, Q&A, and application details. Available at Fisheries Supply, West Marine, and other retailers. Priced between $39.99 and $339.99; Awlgrip’s brush cleaner product is optional.

Super Flops

Astral’s Filipe & Rosa Convertible Flip-flop || $69.95 For those of us who can’t decide between the liberty of flip-flops and the utility of sandals, here’s some good news. The Astral line of water-related footwear now offers the Filipe (for men) and Rosa (for women) convertible flip-flops that can easily be converted into sandals. Hop off the dinghy with a pair of these on the standard flip-flop mode, then simply add the detachable “super strap” that secures one’s foot by wrapping around the heel and over the instep to take on a forest trail. The footwear features a soft water-wicking liner and soft nylon webbing at the toe post. What’s more, they come in a variety of colors and have stylish synthetic leather embroidery. More information is available at astraldesigns.com, priced at $69.95.

Water Music

Aquatic AQ-MP-5UBT-S Media Player || $419.00

MagicEzy Hairline Fix || $24.99

July 17, 1717: it took fifty musicians on a barge to bring Handel’s composition to King George I’s boat. Three hundred years later, Aquatic AV® brings the AQ-MP-5UBT-S Media Player to your floating palace so you can listen in royal style, without the entourage. The Aquatic AV media player is Bluetooth® and SiriusXM® (subscription service) ready and is loaded with convenient features. The waterproof marine stereo plays music wirelessly via a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or MP3 device or a direct USB connection. Aquatic AV has built-in stereo 3.5mm jack and RCA inputs so you can easily navigate your tunes on Apple iOS or USB devices, or even connect a flash drive. The AQ-MP-5UBT-S will also charge your device so you don’t have to worry about going silent. Aquatic AV says this system will power up to eight speakers with an onboard 288W amplifier; add an external amplifier or powered subwoofer to impress your court. A clock display mode and FM/AM radio are also onboard. There’s a removable faceplate plus dummy faceplate and dust cover, and an internal device compartment. For more information and a directory of distributors, visit the manufacturer’s online store at aquaticav.com. Current online price is $419.00 with free shipping, by George!

Is there really a “magic” hairline fix? Well, yes, if we’re talking about gelcoat, fiberglass, ceramics, and stone: Take a look at MagicEzy Hairline Fix, a colored sealant designed to quickly and easily repair fine stress cracks (spider cracks) and hairline fractures. This is an Australian-made DIY product, and the manufacturer’s website features helpful hints, diagrams, a video, companion products, live chat, and FAQs. You can even order samples for color-matching your boat’s paint. If the sun and the years have aged your topside, colors can be mixed to provide an accurate match. Note: this product is not sold for use below the waterline. MagicEzy Hairline Fix is easy to use, with no mixing required; it’s air dried so there’s no catalyst. The kit supplies a built-in applicator and level scraper. It’s promoted as non-toxic, UV-andwater-resistant, and cleans up with soap and water. Restore the youthful look of gelcoat by following product instructions to prep, fill, and finish cracks of any size. The product is said to prevent cracks from spreading, and has a money-back guaranteed for three years. Available in 10 colors. MSRP is $24.99 and you’ll find it at Fisheries Supply.

App Spotlight RaftUp || Free for iOs This community-based location app is aimed at boaters who want to stay in touch and in the know. Get real-time U.S. Coast Guard weather updates (water temperature, currents, tide level, precipitation, and more), chat with fellow boaters with the app, and see reviews and pictures of fellow users. What’s more, the app posts events of note and doubles up as a GPS chartplotter to help skippers see where they are. If interested, check it out for iOS in the iTunes store. It’s free and works for both iPads and iPhones.

United States Power Squadron Digital Media Library || Free for Andriod Boating safety is important, but even the brainiest of us can have a hard time remembering what every signal or rule of the road is. Fortunately, the United States Power Squadron (USPS) has an app for its Digital Media Library (DML) that serves as a wealth of safety information for boaters. The app features quizzes and videos to help keep you safe and smart on the water. The USPS DML app is compatible with Android versions 4.0.3 and up.

Bargain AIS Ship Finder Lite || Free for iOs Not all of us have AIS devices aboard, but the Ship Finder Lite app is the next best thing. This handy app shows the near-live positions of moving ships that transmit an AIS signal, essentially turning one’s phone into a radar device. The AIS signals are all laid upon a GPS map with the ship’s name, type, and information. This is a great app, even for landlubbers who just want to know more about the big commercial ships cruising by. The developers of the app stress that this is not to be used as a primary navigation source. Ship Finder Lite is on iTunes for free and it is iOS compatible.

Bilge Pump Evolved Nautic Alert

The trusty bilge-pump-and-float-switch combination has been an industry mainstay for decades for good reason. The system is simple and it works: water enters the bilge, lifts the switch, and the pump activates with a whir to get that troublesome brine back into the sea where it belongs. But what if somebody made a “smart” bilge pump that not only does the traditional job, but also alerts you when the pump is working more than usual while you’re away?

Ship Module, ShipModul MiniPlex-3 Largely for the better, technology is creeping into just about every aspect of a typical vessel, and proper integration is the name of the game. While some of us may have a fully-integrated system from one manufacturer, many boaters are piecing together and upgrading aspects of their boating system bit by bit. But how does one get their NMEA 0183 “speaking” tiller autopilot to talk to their new NMEA 2000 weather station and chartplotter? How does one get their SeaTalk-compatible transducer to display on a laptop, or wirelessly on a tablet? These common situations arewhere ShipModul’s MiniPlex-3 steps in. The MiniPlex-3 is a comprehensive gateway device dedicated solely to getting a vessel’s systems all talking together. Where an expensive overhaul of an entire vessel is sometimes seen as the only option to integrate different systems aboard, the MiniPlex-3 allows owners to unite their disparate NMEA 2000, NMEA 0183, SeaTalk, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, USB, and more compatible devices

with one another. The tiny gateway fits in the palm of one’s hand, yet it packs an impressive array of interfaces. Not only are there four inputs and two outputs for NMEA 0183 devices, but also a USB port for other electronics like laptops to get in on the action. The NMEA 2000 is officially certified and AIS is supported for both NMEA 2000 and 0183. What’s more, the MiniPlex-3 has wireless capabilities, so any smartphone or tablet can be integrated into the onboard systems as well. Ethernet is also built in. Good things often come in small packages, and for those of us with a mélange of non-integrated systems, the MiniPlex-3 gives us an option for the kind of synergy that we’d normally have to pay for an entire electronics overhaul. ShipModul is a Dutch company with a new office in Seattle, Washington, and more information can be found at shipmodul.com. The MiniPlex-3 model has different six configuration options ranging in price according to specifications from around $230 to $380.

That’s exactly what the Nautic Alert system does. This electronic monitoring system actually learns a bilge pump’s typical behavior and alerts you (or a trusted dock master) when the pump is working overtime, indicating a potential problem. Not only that, but Nautic Alert also monitors battery charge levels and even doubles up as a vessel locator alarm. Both capabilities will be especially appreciated by owners leaving their vessels on the hook and who are keeping an eye on battery life and anchor drag. The trusty bilge pump looks like it’s getting a technology refit like just about everything else on the boat. What’s next? Check out nauticalert.com for more details, systems vary between $1,000 and $1,914.

AIS + LCD

Si-Tex SAS-600 Hybrid Class B AIS Transponder AIS transponders are increasingly becoming standard aboard recreational boats, and that’s for the better as far as many safety-minded individuals believe. Why not put a display on one? Si-Tex’s SAS-600 Hybrid Class B AIS Transponder is just that, an AIS transponder with a highdefinition color LCD display. The entire unit is encased in a waterproof housing, and the display features both daytime and nighttime modes for easier target tracking. The unit is compatible with NMEA 0183, NMEA 2000, and Wi-Fi enabled devices, making it easy to integrate into one’s existing electronics. It’s not hard to imagine an emergency in which getting alerts or AIS-wielding commercial vessel positions directly to one’s smartphone could come in handy. AIS is a good idea, especially in fog-ridden, heavily trafficked waters like Puget Sound. Why not look at an AIS system with a bunch of features and a wide range of compatibility? Check it out at si-tex.com, priced at $1,999.

Kevin’s Catch By Kevin Klein

Fishing Fireworks! July is truly a contender for the crown of “Best darn month to be alive and on the water” in the Northwest. King salmon, crab, fun, sun, fireworks, and freedom! School may be out for summer, but let me give you a class on what, where, when, and how to get a grade A fish box full of the sea’s bounty. Let’s start with my favorite fish to chase, Chinook salmon. From Northern California to the Oregon and Washington coasts to Southeast Alaska (and many points in between), July is when our season opens for the king. Close to home, places like Westport, Neah Bay, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Puget Sound, and my lair, the San Juan Islands, will bustle with boats bristling salmon rods. Depending on where you chase kings in the saltwater, keeping the tactics and tackle simple pays dividends. Downrigger trolling with an 11-inch flasher and small spoon is my go-to for July Chinook. I like the Silver Horde Kingfisher 3-inch spoons in green/glow with 48 inches of 30-pound leader tied to a flasher of the same color. Of course, plastic squid, herring, or anchovies will also work well. If you see larger bait on the surface, try a larger offering. Whatever the fish are keying on, match that hatch to produce strikes.

Location plays the biggest part in Chinook salmon success. Being at the right place at the right time and right tide is key. Out in the Pacific, that could be as easy as getting good enough weather to get out to the 40-fathom line and beyond. In the interior water, finding kings may mean using your electronics to find structure, bait, and salmon themselves. Some places we will be fishing this month have a combination of both. Take a July hot spot like Tahsis, B.C., for example. There are places in the interior that can hold incoming kings. If the weather dictates, you may want to stay inside. No point in pounding out if you don’t have too. Conversely, however, you may have to go out to the “highway” four to twelve miles out in the open ocean to find the fish. No matter where you are, always know the rules and regulations before you go. Many places in Washington are marked selective fisheries. This means only Chinook that have a clipped adipose fin may be retained. Also know your species. Getting caught with a salmon that is kept illegally results in paying a very big fine. Once you know the rules, go have fun. Getting a big rod yanking takedown from a 30-, 40-, or even 50-pound king is a huge rush. Already, fish in the 60-pound class have been caught in Southeast Alaska this year. You never know, your next bite could be the big one! Speaking of the big one, there will be two salmon derbies in the Northwest Salmon Derby Series in July. The first is the Bellingham Salmon Derby July 14-16, put on by the Bellingham, Washington, Puget Sound Anglers Club. This is a very well-run family-friendly event with lots of prizes for all ages. Last year our friends Andy and Carol Holman won an all- expenses paid trip to Queen Charlotte Lodge valued at $10,000! Proceeds go to good causes in the area. Visit their website at bellinghampsa. com for more info. The second is the Big One Chinook Derby in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, July 27-31. I would love to check this out! Fishing for these landlocked Chinook can be very good, and they get big. Last year’s winner was almost 25 pounds! Go to the Lake Coeur d’ Alene Angler’s Association website at lcaaidaho.com to sign up. Good time for a road trip! Continued on Page 90

A lifelong resident of Washington, Kevin Klein has been on the rivers, lakes, and salt waters of the Pacific Northwest since conception. In 2004 Kevin relocated to the San Juan Islands and began to write numerous articles for outdoor magazines and contribute to websites dedicated to fishing. Kevin can be found promoting sport fishing and giving seminars on tips and techniques to become a better boater and fishing person. A passion became a career when Kevin joined Inside Passage Yacht Sales as their Northwest sports and fishing representative. On any given day you may find Kevin and his wife Vicki, also an accomplished angler, plying the waters of the Northwest, spreading the word of the benefits of the boating and fishing lifestyle.

On Watch By Peter Schrappen

Rules of thumb: It’s all you will ever need to win I had the opportunity to present to a 300-level university political science class this past month. The professor is a fan of this column and wanted me to share with his students how lobbying plays out at the federal government. Never wanting to miss a chance to infuse my thoughts into the rising stars of the political world, I first said, “Yes!” and then thought, “Wait, what am I supposed to be an expert on?” Fortunately, it turns out that the rules of thumb for lobbying at the state capitol translate to Washington, D.C. Also, it worked out well that I was fresh from the annual American Boating Congress that took place in our nation’s capital. Okay, I’m biased – the presentation went well. Today’s topics at the federal level (funding of the Ballard Locks repairs and the evils of ethanol) underscore just how issues of the day succeed when simple rules are put into practice. For example, one of my favorite rules of thumb is that democracy is for those who show up. You can only bemoan current events for so long. Being proud and loud gets you so much further in life. The contingent of the delegates with me during the American Boating Congress hammered this point home during eight Congressional office visits. One of my favorite memories of the 2017 edition involved a Puget Sound lawmaker bragging about the airplanes built in her district and bemoaning that she didn’t have any boat builders from her region that could adorn her walls with their photos. Au contraire was our response. John Livingston of Ranger Tugs and Cutwater Boats, who was part of the delegation, jumped right in, “Actually, we have three facilities in your area and I will have framed pictures mailed to you.” Once again it proved the truism out of sight, out of mind. Whew, close one! More recently, there was another significant rule of thumb that demonstrated just how important it is to “get to the party early rather than arrive late and disheveled.” This issue affects all boaters, marinas, and yacht clubs. As for some background, stray electrical current and freshwater don’t mix. Taken to the extreme, you can take your life into your own hands if you swim in a marina. Unfortunately, new codes (as part of the National Electrical Code) were moving forward as industry standards with no input from the boating community. This new code would mean that any stray current over 30 milliamps at the pedestal, dock, and main facility would cut off power to the entire facility. Keep in mind that a toaster puts out 3 milliamps of stray current, meaning that 10 boats making breakfast at the same time would shut down power to the entire marina. You are reading this correctly.

Thanks to Dwight Jones of Elliott Bay Marina tipping me off to this development, I jumped into high gear. I reached out to the national boating and marina associations. Let’s just say they weren’t tracking this incredibly important change. I reached out to this national board considering the change to learn that the state was already in the process of moving in this 30-milliamp direction. Uh-oh. Not sure where to turn, I reminded myself that when there’s a crisis, reach out to friends in high-up places. This simply means that I phoned supportive lawmakers and set up time with the Recreational Boating Association of Washington to build our coalition around the KISS (Keep it simple, stupid) principle. “These changes are not feasible. Thirty milliamps at the boat makes sense but not for the entire marine facility.” Fortunately, relationships were already in place, trust had been built, and our message and lack of any opposition all combined to put our group in the perfect place to win. And win we did! Washington’s agency that oversees this adoption agreed with us (even though the opportunity to offer public comment had already ended). I will meet with Washington’s Department of Labor & Industries later this month to keep moving forward on this issue. We received a year reprieve to make our case. Had I waited just a few weeks on this one, it would have meant that any new construction or repairing of marinas would have to live within this parameter. Fortunately, getting in early beats getting in late, and now the onus is on us to convince others that the gospel of boating and safety Northwest Marine Trade Association are on our side. Stay tuned. representatives Karsten McIntosh (left) and I In closing, I’d encourage (right) in Washington D.C. enjoying our time at you to not think of the pothe recent American Boating Congress. litical system as some mystical model of complex arrangements and relationships. Rather, it’s just the opposite. To mangle a Yogi Berra-ism, if 90% of the (lobbying) job is showing up, the other half means bringing your rules of thumb to bat.

Galley Gourmet By Bridget Charters

Summer Adventures On Puget Sound Loading the boat and pulling away from the dock is an amazing feeling, for everything that occupies your mind vanishes. The focus becomes the wind, the waves, other boats, and the sun in your eyes. The disconnect from our busy workday world is something to cherish once we are out on the water. If we could all just “accidently” flip our phones overboard, I think many of us would be okay with the mistake. The environs of Puget Sound are so special and we are so very lucky to explore and enjoy the Salish Sea. Since boat owners are committed to life on the water, why not do it in style? Get organized early in the week and stock your boat smartly so you are the whiz at the end of the dock with the amazing smells, delicious wines, and the great spread of hors d’oeuvres that the rest of the dock can ogle. As you are planning your weekend escape, organize your week to purchase supplies so that Friday’s afternoons only require a stop at home to grab the gear bags, cooler, and family. Stock up on an assortment of beers and wines. There are amazing local beers in cans ranging from very light lagers to darker, hop-laced ales, all great flavors; plus cans are lightweight and easy to deal with at dockside recycling. All grocery stores now offer case discounts on wines, so invest in a case of delicious rosé wines along with a split case of reds and whites that can be stowed in cubbies throughout the boat. Stock up on various types of crackers, nuts, chips, and pretzels for last minute gatherings, and have jars of olives or cans of smoked seafood to offer up as old friends walk down the dock.

If your boating gatherings involve more friends and extended evenings, then make the work on yourself easy by arriving at the boat with pre-marinated meats and poultry sealed in bags with small tubs of frozen sauces that are great with fish, or precooked grains, potatoes, or dry pasta as a side. Cooking is easy as long as you get organized and cook with some confidence. Boats have limited storage spaces and cooking areas, so it is imperative that you get organized and plan your meals ahead, regardless of who is coming to dinner. When planning your menu over the course of a few days, try to consolidate ingredients so the menu has similarities but is not the same. For example, bring pre-chopped ingredients to make a Greek-style peasant salad, dress some of the salad and add feta one night, then the next day add cooked pieces of salmon, some diced potato, and creamy dressing. The salad becomes something completely different — a type of entrée to serve with another salad or perhaps with some cured salami and cheese. Pre-marinated meats can be dried off and grilled for dinner one night, then that same meat can be tossed with some blue cheese, salad greens, and cherry tomatoes for a delicious salad the next day. It helps to map out the menu for the weekend with a sheet of paper that lists the menus and ingredients needed, then take time to reorganize the list so there is repetition of ingredients throughout the weekend. It is easy to keep a few cans of organic garbanzo beans, a jar of sun-dried tomatoes, or some marinated artichoke hearts to help switch up the repertoire. You just need to plan ahead and buy all your supplies in advance. Now get out and enjoy our well-deserved summer!

Herb Marinated and Grilled Flank Steak /2 cup olive oil /4 cup balsamic vinegar 4 cloves garlic, smashed 2 sprigs fresh rosemary sprigs, stripped from stalks and rough chopped 2 sprigs fresh thyme sprigs, stripped from stalks 1 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons black pepper, coarsely ground 1 1

In a large sealable bag, combine all the ingredients. Shake the bag to combine, add the flank steak, and refrigerate for a few hours or a few days maximum. When ready to grill, remove the meat from the bag, allow to drain and pat dry with paper towels. Grill on a very hot grill turning every five minutes or so, or until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 120 degrees. Once the meat is done cooking, remove the meat to a baking sheet. Allow to rest lightly covered in a warm location. Slice the meat a quarter or half inches thick on the bias.

at the bar or work-from-home types on their Macbooks. “Your coffee is on me,” Baker says as we get comfortable and I brace myself for tales from a true bona fide sailor. We exchange a handshake, and it isn’t more than a few seconds before we dig into his favorite topic: the Vic-Maui International Yacht Race. Baker is The Professor when


all. The Victoria start line boasts the decidedly BritishNavy blazers of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club and the Pacific Northwest’s evergreen studded mountains, while the battle across half of the Pacific to Maui ends with flip-flops and rainbows that arch over palm trees and white sand beaches. The race attracts both hotshot pros on true racing sleds as well as those who just want to make it to the other side. As a nine-time Vic-Maui veteran, Baker definitely has some salt cred to hang his hat on. He currently works as a mentor with the race to teach newcomers safety at sea and weather routing for the upcoming 2018 race. Baker has given countless talks, including one at the last Seattle Boat Show, and his blog posts remain some of the best and most widely shared Vic-Maui resources for those following the race. But what is it about Vic-Maui that keeps bringing him, and many other Pacific Northwest racers, back? “Vic-Maui is a great race,’’ says Baker without hesitation. “As a navigator, I like the race because it’s much more complex than a race from L.A. or San Francisco to Hawaii. Vic-Maui is more of a navigator’s race, and we can have a huge impact. Also, it’s convenient for those who live up here. Why do a passage down south to do something like this? Additionally, it’s easier to get back to the Pacific Northwest from Hawaii than back to California. It’s a much more pleasant trip and only around 200 nautical miles longer.” Baker has been the navigator in seven of his nine Vic-Maui races, and his evolution into the important role still has him scratching his head. “I don’t know how it happened, but now I’m considered a weather person. I’m pretty much self-taught.

I’ve routed people all over the place and I don’t charge anybody, so I always preface it with you get what you pay for,” he jokes, underplaying the value of his free services and his reputation. “For my first two Vic-Maui races, I was just a young guy having a good time!”

It Began in the Eighties Baker’s first Vic-Maui race was in 1984 aboard Hypertension, a Baltic 42. He was 19 and ended up on the crew roster through connections and with a little luck. “It was that first race when I discovered that I can, in fact, get seasick,” Baker chuckles. “There’s lots of stories. There used to

be this boat called Ajax, a Santa Cruz 40. Those guys knew how to have fun, everyone knew Ajax. In ‘86, they had a blow-up doll named Olga who had raced across with them in ‘84. Well, in ‘86 they tied Olga up to the spreaders. I don’t know if they know this, but I’m the one who shimmied up the mast in the night to kidnap Olga. We actually sailed with Olga on Hypertension to Hawaii.” The Olga drama unfolded as the racers tore across the Pacific. Baker puts a fake mike to his mouth in the retelling. “Once on roll call, Ajax’s skipper gets on the radio and then adds, ‘Where’s Olgaaaa?!?’ My skipper, Roger Palmer, reported, ‘Olga’s

position is…’ and gave the position of our boat. Well, Ajax got in ahead of us and convinced the customs folks in Maui to help them get Olga back. The customs guy came out with his list of people and the ninth was Olga. They confiscated Olga right on the spot when we finished.” Baker can’t say enough about how great the cooperation is between the Lahaina Yacht Club and the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club. “When you get to Lahaina, the yacht club arranges sponsors from the local community, usually restaurants, and every boat get this big spread of food and drinks. Everybody also gets lei’ed (the traditional flower necklace). The boat even gets a lei!”

Baker’s sailing career began in 1979 when he was a 15-year-old crewmember aboard Heather, a 41-foot Bob Perry-designed, two-tonner donated to the Explorer Scouts. He also raced in the Swiftsure International Yacht Race in 1980 aboard Heather, the first of his now 34 Swiftsures he’s raced, and they won first overall in IOR. He went on to skipper a J/24 fleet championship, crew aboard the Thunderbird Rev for two world championships, log roughly 40,000 nautical miles, and is now the navigator on the competitive Reichel-Pugh 55-foot racing sailboat Crossfire. Baker currently works as a broker for Swiftsure Yachts and has observed the last two VicMaui races from the sidelines so he could spend more time with his family. Swiftsure Yachts is a mostly high-end racing and blue water sailboat brokerage operating out of Seattle. They are dealers of Hallberg-Rassy, Outbound Yachts, Allures Yachting, Garcia Yachting, and Outremer Yachting builds.

Of course, Vic-Maui is not all fun and games. As Baker’s racing career matured over the decades, he ended up on highperforming race crews. Baker grew into the navigator role, a position in modern racing that has less to do with location (that’s what GPS is for) and more about developing a winning strategy. To that end, Baker offers many tips for the aspiring Vic-Maui finishers and class winners from his years of experience.

1. Become a Weather Nerd Tip #1 – Know the tools at your disposal. Modern technology offers racers and ambitious weather nerds many opportunities


to get ahead. “Everybody uses Expedition software. It is expensive, though,” according to Baker. “I’m self taught and it’s all about going to seminars, talking to experienced racers, and being proactive.” Tip #2 – Although you cannot use a third-party weather router during the race, you can use professional input up until the starting gun. “Lots of the very prepared guys do that,” says Baker. A popular choice is Commander’s Weather, an East Coast company. Tip #3 – Test one’s communication systems to make sure the boat can stay in the know, download publically available GRIB files, and the like. “Don’t let the boat owner install that single sideband or test out that Iridium satellite phone the day before the race,” advises Baker.

up Spectra core material for the stretches of line that go around corners. Six feet of the material usually does the trick.” Tip #3 – Charging and electrical systems as a whole are often less on the mind of racers, but spare alternators, voltage regulators, and knowing how to troubleshoot engine starters is vital for long-range races like Vic-Maui. Baker recommends the classic Boatowner’s Mechanical and Electrical Manual by Nigel Calder.

3. Know the Rules It's not a casual affair, cautions Baker. “Vic-Maui is a strict race and there are more rules every year.” It is vital that racers know the rules and regulations associated with the race. Boats needs to participate in qualifying races,

Good shipmates do 110%. There are plenty of great guys in the race who are not necessarily the best sailors, but they are rock solid. 2. Prep, Prep, Prep “You can’t win by preparing alone, but you can lose by not preparing,” says Baker. Tip #1 – At least one boat always has steering problems. Head that off and be ready to fix and replace steering cables, bearings, and rudders. Tip #2 – Never underestimate the destructive power of chafe on anything under load or moving, like halyards, sheets, and guys. “I tell everyone to use straight

Are you in? For dreamers who are thinking about giving Vic-Maui a go, experienced racers who want to stay in the know, or landlubbers who want to follow along, the vicmaui.org website is the one to check out.

4. Get Good Shipmates pass safety inspections, and more. Information is available for racers on vicmaui.org. Making that last-minute safety inspection or scrambling to buy the right antennae as per the regulations can add stress or even disqualify a boat. “People have different levels of organization. I like to arrive in Victoria and have nothing to do except normal stuff,” Baker says.

“They're better than rock star sailors,” says Baker. As far as crew selection is concerned, Baker is a big advocate for good shipmates being more important than jaw-dropping sailing resumes. At the end of the day, the typical crew will be trapped together on a boat for around two weeks. They simply have to get along. “The race can bring out the poor traits in some and you really want to vet the crew.

Serious competitors often come back for more. Strum, a Riptide 50 designed by Paul Bieker, proved to be the victor in the 2008 race (in both corrected and elapsed times), the fifth for owner Wink Vogel. The crew also included Vogel's sons Randy and Tim, both veterans of multiple Vic-Maui races themselves. (Photo: Dave Woodcock)

Good shipmates do 110%, keep their area clean, and not only do what they’re told but ask how fast. There are plenty of great guys in the race who are not necessarily the best sailors, but they are rock solid. Crew need to be good shipmates, and it’s a bonus if they are rock star sailors.

5. Coping with Quease “Everybody gets sick at some point. The key is to manage it,” says Baker. Tip #1 - Everybody is different and you need to know about what works for you and how your body responds to different situations. Tip #2 – Try to keep something in your belly. “I am constantly snacking aboard,” says Baker. Tip #3 – Gravol. Baker recommends and uses this Canadian version of Dramamine (labeled Gravol in stores). “It works best for me. It does still make you sleepy, put I pop one and usually feel better in half an hour.”

2016: Broken Records The last Vic-Maui race in 2016 saw both the elapsed and correct time records broken by a sizeable margin. Skipper Gavin Brackett drove his Transpac 52 Valkyrie across the finish in eight days, nine hours, 17 minutes, and 50 seconds to destroy the previous elapsed time record of Grand Illusion (a Santa Cruz 70) in 2000 by over a day. Baker predicted that the 2000 record wasn’t going to hold on his blog before it happened. “I knew the 2016 record was going to happen because I was paying attention to the weather. After the second of three

starts and the weather set up, I said on the blog the record is going to be broken. And I was right, wahoo! We had a solid high-pressure block that set up. The high is usually somewhere between 1027 and 1035 millibars, generally, if the system is even set up at all. In 2016, the high was setup to 1040 millibars and farther north and west than normal. That produced a solid wind field from the Washington coast to Hawaii with winds ranging from 15 to 30 knots all the way for a constant downwind breeze.” An important element to understanding Vic-Maui is the nature of the Pacific Northwest summer. “Have you ever heard the meteorologist joke that Seattle summers don’t start until July 12? It’s usually true because that’s when precipitation really takes a dive around here. You are pretty much guaranteed to have nice weather after July 12 because it’s the change between the winter/spring pattern and into the summer pattern. So if Vic-Maui starts at the end of June or early July, you still might be in the winter/spring weather pattern with stormy weather.” Baker was also able to make his bold, but accurate, prediction thanks to intermodel weather forecast agreement. “If several weather models agree on the same solution, we have ‘high confidence’ in weather-prediction lingo. The sleds had a wild ride. A good ride!” To set a record, the right boats also had to be on the course, and in 2016 there were a few of them. “There were four boats that could’ve done it. Crossfire was one of them, but heartbreakingly, they had to turn around at the beginning of the race. They had a 60-nautical-mile lead too,” says Baker.

Journey to 2018 The next Vic-Maui starts June 30 – July 4, 2018, and entries recently opened on June 15, 2017. Despite all the buzz and predictions flying around, Baker is insistent that the next Vic-Maui in 2018 is too far off to say much about. Now that we are about a year away from the 2018 race, Baker says he would be preparing the crew’s spreadsheet of tasks to delegate, an assignment of epic proportions if he was participating. “A lot of weather guys try to speak with confidence about weather predications for 2018 and try to cite some El Niño thing or whatever, but who really knows. Based on my experience, I know that at about a year out is when you really start thinking about it. At this stage there’s a lot of planning that’s happening, but perhaps not necessarily a lot of work on the boats yet.” Although he is not planning to participant in 2018, his eyes light up when talking about the next race. I imagine that the gleam in his eye is the same as when he was a 20-year-old crewmember climbing the spreaders of Ajax to kidnap Olga. Baker strokes his chin reflectively. “When you finish a race like Vic-Maui, there’s actually a big let-down. You accomplish this huge adventure and then you get in a slump thinking, ‘Well, what next? Go to Disneyland?’ You just conquered the Pacific, and that’s life changing for people. It certainly was for me.”

LIBATION LIBERATION 70 NORTHWEST YACHTING || JULY 2017

A Craft Beer Cruise

on Puget Sound BY GREG VAN BELLE


IT HAD BEEN A LONG DAY. OUR MAIDEN TRIP ON OUR NEW BOAT WAS A DELIVERY FROM OLYMPIA TO EVERETT, AND IF ALL HAD GONE TO PLAN WE WOULD HAVE BEEN RIDING A NICE EBB CURRENT NORTH THROUGH THE NARROWS, GETTING US ALL THE WAY HOME IN ONE LONG PUSH. But all hadn’t gone according to plan. Some issues over getting the keys from the previous owner, some last-minute questions about the boat’s systems, a little extra time getting the boat provisioned, some electronics confusion, and a last-minute run to the store all conspired to delay our departure by a couple of hours. Our timing was off, so we slogged through unfamiliar South Sound waters apparently hitting every contrary current to be found. At least the weather seemed to be cooperating. The spring sun broke through the high clouds around midday. What little wind we picked up was behind us. As we cleared the Narrows, however, we could only watch as dark clouds filled in around Point Defiance. A confused wind set in from the southwest, then turned and blew from the east. This was no dangerous storm, but none of us felt like pushing through the squall and the others we knew would be blowing through all night. Our late start and slow progress called for a quick change of plans. Rather than steaming on into the darkness, we made the decision to duck into Gig Harbor for the night. If there is a finer harbor in Puget Sound, I have yet to find it. Once inside the incredibly narrow entrance, there was no hint of the blustery wind on the outside. On this particular spring evening, the bay was almost mirror-calm and only a handful of boats were sitting at anchor. We made a quick pass, found our spot, and dropped anchor on our new boat for the first time. Once settled at anchor, Ron, my close friend and the co-owner of the boat, called out of the cabin with bad news. We forgot the beer. Of course we did. In addition to the punch list of things needing attention on the new boat, this matter needed to be remedied. There is no tradition as satisfying as what we call the “landfall beer.” Once our day’s cruising is done and we’re safely moored for the night, that first beer is its own reward. Of course, we could have made a quick trip to the grocery to grab a six-pack or two, but this is the Pacific Northwest, and fresh, locally brewed beer is never far away. We dropped the dinghy off the davits, motored into docks and began exploring our options. Gig Harbor is home to two excellent breweries. Wet Coast Brewing is a one-mile walk

B

up the hill from the docks on the southern shore. Steeped in a Prohibition-era ethic, Wet Coast is committed to small batch beer and celebrating craft beer culture. But tonight that walk up the hill is just a little too much, so we settle in at 7 Seas Brewing, just a block or two off the waterfront in a space that was at one time a grocery store. 7 Seas Brewing started in 2009 with a small set-up in a tiny space – as most microbreweries do – expanding and moving to their current location in 2012. Ron and I chose seats at the bar and sampled a few beers before deciding on the Life Jacket Citrus IPA and the Rude Parrot IPA. The taproom at 7 Seas Brewing is exactly my sort of place. No televisions blaring random sporting events from some other city (though I am told they do roll out the large screen projector for Seahawks games). No loud music. Just a friendly atmosphere where locals talk to the visitors and the bartenders are knowledgeable and friendly. Over those beers, we hatched a plan. Once this delivery was done, our next trip was going to be in search of the best brewery on Puget Sound. Back onboard we pulled out the charts and poured another round from the glass

growler we had bought and filled back at the brewery. Our plan was made. We would seek out the breweries that turn their gaze toward the water. Breweries we could reach from guest docks and avoid dinghy use (especially motorized ones). Always have a sober person onboard who is licensed and capable of piloting the boat in case of emergency. When stopping for the night, secure the boat to your mooring and remove the keys from the ignition. Drink responsibly and be especially cautious on docks, on narrow side decks, and in dinghies. It’s no great secret that the Northwest is home to some of the best craft beer in the world. Since the 1980s, brewers have tapped into the qualities that make the Puget Sound area special and translated the vibe of the region into their beers. Given the rich maritime tradition of the area, it is only fitting that so many brewers have embraced the waterfront as the location for their operations and as the source of their inspiration. Weeks later, we set out on our search. First stop, downtown Seattle.

SEATTLE BELL HARBOR

Bell Harbor Marina is tucked in at the foot of Pike Place Market on the north end of the downtown waterfront. The small boat basin provides an incredible way to experience the city from your boat. Make reservations ahead of time to guarantee a slip if you can, but know that the staff is very good at finding space for as many boats as possible. From Bell Harbor it is a short but strenuous climb up to Cloudburst Brewing, where Steve Luke brews a wide variety of beers on a dizzying rotation. Your favorite beer today might not be there next week,

replaced by something completely new. I am a fan of small, purposeful spaces like the Cloudburst taproom. A dozen taps and a no-frills repurposed space give Cloudburst a perfect urban atmosphere. The Pike Brewing Company isn’t a small operation, but it is a Seattle original that has stayed true to its roots. Still family-owned and located in the iconic Pike Place Market, Pike Brewing produces solid beers, serves good pub food, and houses the Micro-brewery Museum, in case you want some history with your beer.

POULSBO

KINGSTON

LITTLE NORWAY

BAINBRIDGE ISLAND A quick steam from Seattle, we drop anchor on short scope to avoid swinging into the dozens of boats in Eagle Harbor on Bainbridge Island. It’s a longer walk than we planned, but Bainbridge Island Brewing is worth the trek. The taproom here is family-friendly but beer-centric. Bring your own food or order in and enjoy the company of locals while you sample the flagship beers or a rotating seasonal. Locally sourced ingredients and an eye toward experimentation make Bainbridge Island’s brews at turns unpredictable and innovative. Every beer has a story and a connection to local history. The Eagle Harbor IPA is a favorite, but for my tastes, the Bainbridge Single Hop Pale Ale is the true standout here, brewed and released in slightly different versions throughout the year. The Single Hop Pale Ale is an education in beer ingredients and flavors.

POULSBO Poulsbo is quickly becoming the premiere cruising destination in the central Puget Sound. The excellent anchorage is part of it, and of course the tourismfocused waterfront area helps. Poulsbo is quickly developing a standout craft beer scene with three breweries up and running and a fourth on its way this year. We happen upon Slippery Pig Brewery just steps from the docks and the place does not disappoint on any level. Let’s just start with the fact that there is pinball. Is there anything better than sipping a craft beer and popping quarters into a pinball machine? Head brewer Dave Lambert puts together incredible beers using local and unique ingredients, mostly from the team’s family farm. The

British style Dandelion Bitter and Stinging Nettle Mild are prime examples of Dave’s creative approach to ingredients. Don’t miss either one of these brews. Just up the hill from the waterfront, in what used to be the town library building, Volhall Brewing is a local favorite and a fixture in “Little Norway.” The taproom is replete with reclaimed wood from local sources, iron work done by a local artisan, and ingredients from local farms. The atmosphere here is casual, and it’s easy to imagine treating the Volhall taproom as your own living room. The beers here are an eclectic mix of the whims of the brewmaster, but there is something for everyone. The Brew Bitch IPA is worth filling a growler for later, trust me.

KINGSTON As we work our way north, we make a quick stop in Kingston, where Downpour Brewing owner and head brewer Dan Williams has been serving his Hop Llama Double IPA and other beers to locals and tourists for almost three years. The Kingston Marina is an often overlooked gem with ample guest docks, a wonderful waterfront park, and one of the nicer fuel docks in the region. There are four mooring buoys just north of the ferry terminal that make lunch stops easy. From the marina, The Downpour Brewing taproom is a quick walk up the hill and is more than worth the effort. Like many craft brewers, Dan got his start home brewing in his kitchen, and that small batch ethic has translated over to his current operation. Small brewing systems let outfits like Downpour rotate their offerings, so each time you visit there is likely to be something new for you to try. Continued on Page 74

Safety and Sobriety It should go without saying that in addition to being illegal, drinking and operating a vessel is a terrible idea. Understanding the law when it comes to impaired boating is important, but note that it really boils down to “don’t drink and boat.” On our beer-fueled adventure through the Sound, we made a point of always having a completely sober captain. Since any impaired judgment or reflexes can have dire consequences on the water for you, your crew, your boat, and those around you, it is always best to delay drinking until after you are securely tied to a dock or mooring. Here are the highlights of the Washington law on impaired boating: • The legal blood-alcohol limit is .08, just as for operating an automobile. • Under state law, boating under the influence is a gross misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail and a $5,000 fine. • It is legal for passengers to drink alcohol onboard, but they must be 21 and must not have an active role in handing the boat. • Officers with local police and the Coast Guard, with probable cause, may ask a captain to submit to a breathalyzer test to determine sobriety. Refusal to take the test can result in a $1,000 fine and can increase the penalty for boating under the influence. • The Coast Guard may board your vessel at any time for any reason, with or without probable cause. • Captains of boats at anchor or secured to a mooring or dock are not usually at risk of being charged with boating under the influence; however, it is important to note that a boat at anchor requires a sober captain. Should the boat slip anchor or have another boat swing into it, someone onboard needs to be able to pilot the boat out of danger. Always have a sober person onboard who is licensed and capable of piloting the boat in case of emergency. When stopping for the night, secure the boat to your mooring and remove the keys from the ignition. Drink responsibly and be especially cautions on docks, on narrow side decks, and in dinghies.

EDMONDS I’ll admit to my preference for industrial spaces and utilitarian brewpubs, and American Brewing Company has long been one of my favorites. Located in an airy warehouse and tucked away in the corner of a business park, American Brewing can be hard to find for a firsttime visitor. The brewpub is just across the railroad tracks from the very wellappointed Edmonds Marina. In addition to their iconic beers, American serves locally sourced menu items and has a large outdoor space for relaxing in the sun with your mates. Plan a trip to catch “Test Batch Tuesday,” when the brewers break out very limited runs of experimental beer recipes. American Brewing Company is the sort of place where you can sit, share a beer, and chat with the brewers as they end their day of work. It is a bit of a walk into downtown Edmonds to get to Salish Sea Brewing, but don’t let that stop you. Salish Sea is focused on small batch beer first and foremost. Their intent is to make clean, simple beers that are consistently excellent. Their taproom is designed to encourage community, conversation, and socialization. As with many brewpubs in the area, you will be warmly welcomed here by the regular locals, and they will regale you with stories about the brewery, the town, and just about anything else you want to talk about.

EVERETT

closed the original Port Townsend Brewing Company in 1916, but the new iteration proudly carries on its tradition. The Hop Diggity IPA is a classic Northwest-style India Pale Ale that shouldn’t be missed. Just east of the marina you will find Propolis Brewing, a local favorite that specializes in seasonal, farm-inspired ales. The intimate taproom is perfect for tasting and chatting with friends. Propolis beers are bottle-conditioned and unique, and as they age, different aromas and flavors come forward. A few minutes talking with the brewers here is a master class in modern brewing techniques and ingredients.

LANGLEY From Port Townsend we head back around the southern tip of Whidbey Island, on our way to our homeport of Everett. But along the way we make a stop in Langley, where the improbable boat basin holds as many boats as they can shoehorn into the space. It’s a short walk up to the town of Langley, and tucked behind other shops and restaurants you’ll find Double Bluff Brewing. Founded in 2015, this small batch brewery has a wonderful taproom, music, and a great patio space. Slightly off the tourist path through town, Double Bluff makes for a wonderful stop on a summer weekend.

A fresh pour at Scuttlebutt Brewery. Scuttlebutt Brewery has been a staple at the port and of my weekends. Scuttlebutt’s operations started in an old net shed building until it was demolished to make way for the still-in-progress redevelopment of the Port of Everett Marina. Now the family restaurant sits right near the head of the guest docks, making it easy for visitors to walk up and try a Gale Force IPA or Homeport Blonde. Scuttlebutt is by no means a small operation anymore, but they maintain a solid rotation of seasonal and experimental beers. The Belgian-style Tripel 7 is an homage to the Boeing aircraft and is wildly popular when it is on draft. The craft beer industry in the Northwest shows no signs of slowing down, and small towns around Puget Sound have shown that several brewpubs can co-exist in relatively small spaces. This means that by the time our exploration of marina-adjacent breweries was complete, it was time to head out again and sample some of the new establishments that had opened. It won’t be long before we grab the growlers, top off the fuel tanks, and head back out to revisit our favorite spots and discover new ones.

EVERETT Home. I have called the Everett Marina home for decades, and since 1996,

From Edmonds we steam north into Admiralty Inlet and head for Port Townsend. While we prefer mooring at Point Hudson Marina on the east side of town, the Port Townsend Brewing Company is located on the west end, and that is why we are there. Secured to a guest dock in the Boat Haven marina, we make our way through the boatyard to the small taproom. Prohibition

Greg Van Belle grew up sailing, cruising, and fishing Puget Sound. He lives in Seattle and teaches writing at Edmonds Community College. You can follow him on Twitter @gregvanbelle.

It seems hard to believe, but distilleries in Washington remained illegal from Prohibition to 2008. Once that law was changed, craft distillers began cropping up around the Sound, and they are definitely worth visiting. Check out these distillers on your next cruise:

Heritage Distilling - Gig Harbor Locally sourced ingredients and iconic “Batch 12” whiskey, bourbon, and vodka. Gin, vodka, and whiskey produced on Vashon Island.

Bainbridge Organic Distillers - Bainbridge Island Washington’s first organic distillery. Award winning whiskeys and vodkas.

A LOOK INSIDE WASHINGTON SEA GRANT’S HALF CENTURY OF WORK PROTECTING LOCAL WATERS & HABITATS

76 NORTHWEST YACHTING || JULY 2017


We ran aground on the final day of a four-day run and within a half hour our boat was lost. We kept our cool, no one argued, and we abandoned ship safely — our crew knew what to do because we had taken various safety classes from Washington Sea Grant.” -Brad Jensen, Captain of the Al Debaran [Ketchikan, AK and Seattle, WA]

What draws people to Washington? Almost any answer a local boater in passing might offer would involve the ocean. Whether it’s eating oysters from a local shellfish farm, riding a ferry across Elliott Bay, enjoying some sun on Lake Washington, or whale watching on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, these are only a few of the many vast experiences the Washington marine environs offer. The state’s 3,000 miles of shoreline is physically, culturally, and economically shaped by the water with around 80% of Washington residents living alongside it. Washington’s maritime sector employs 57,000 people and the state’s fishing fleets and shellfish farms produce some of the nation’s largest, most prized catches and cultured harvests. It’s not surprising that Washington residents rely heavily on these marine and watershed ecosystems to remain healthy and productive. This is where Washington Sea Grant’s role emerges. Washington Sea Grant (WSG) is an organization that works to help state residents understand, conserve, and prosper from the area’s rich marine resources. Impressively, and rounding on 50 years, WSG has spearheaded leadership in research, outreach, and education to help restore and protect our healthy marine environment. Their work not only addresses the current challenges facing Washington’s waterways and shores, but seeks to take action for future use and enjoyment of the coastlines for generations to come.

W

Although WSG is a wide-reaching organization in the state, not everyone truly understands what WSG is and how it came to be. Established in 1968, WSG began as a federal experiment in local investment, building on the University of Washington’s academic strengths in marine science, engineering, and policy. In 1971, WSG became one of the first four programs designated nationally as a Sea Grant College. Today, WSG works with communities, managers, businesses, academic institutions, and the public to strengthen understanding and sustainable use of ocean and coastal resources. Based at the University of Washington College of the Environment, WSG is part of a national network of 33 Sea Grant programs administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and funded by federal-university partnerships. Through research, outreach, education, and communication, WSG helps sustain economic development while encouraging ecosystem-based approaches to the state’s marine management.

SEA GRANT’S MISSION AND OPERATION The WSG mission is dedicated to improving the translation of research and scientific information into knowledge for use in the marine environment. As a state entity, WSG is involved in major initiatives targeting Puget Sound and Washington’s Pacific coast.

Their staff consists of 25 communicators, educators, and field agents located in eight coastal counties whose expertise ranges from oceanography and fisheries to economics and urban planning. WSG works to collaborate at all levels including local, state, regional, national, and international. Their work involves identifying and addressing important marine issues, seeking to provide better tools for management of the marine environment and its resources, and initiating and supporting strategic partnerships within the marine community. The bread and butter of WSG is research, outreach, and education. Research - Research is the cornerstone of WSG’s mission to help people better understand and address the challenges facing the ocean and coasts. WSG acts a catalyst for innovative marine research and education opportunities. As part of a national partnership funded and coordinated by NOAA, WSG sponsors research that combines scientific excellence with a focus on solving problems faced by ocean users and managers. Projects range from exploring the impacts of ocean acidification and harmful algal blooms to improving management of the nation’s largest fisheries. Outreach - Community outreach is how WSG connects to provide scientific and technical information for use by coastal and marine communities. Their outreach programs link Washingtonians to research, information, and practical tools for sustainably using, managing, and enjoying ocean and coastal resources. Top left to top right: Floating logs (“dead heads”) are one of the many navigational hazards WSG deals with, like these ones at Lummi Island after a storm; safe seafood handling training programs have long been a part of WSG’s mission (1985); Univeristy of Washington canoes with WSG teachers providing educational wetlands tours to the public (1994).

Just some of their outreach topics include aquaculture, boating, fisheries, climate change, environmental threats, marine and coastal planning, and sustainable seafood. Education - WSG helps learners of all ages understand how the ocean affects them and how they affect the ocean. Through fellowships, K-12 activities, training, and local events, WSG expands awareness of the environment, enhance enjoyment of marine and coastal resources, and empowers environmental action and information sharing. Most notably, WSG offers one of the most robust marine science fellowship programs in the nation which provides graduate, undergraduate, and postdoctoral students with real-world experience in marine science, policy, and resource management. Reading WSG’s “By the Numbers” is impressive. From 2011 to 2015 WSG contributed $49.1 million in services and economic benefits to Washington and reached 493,000 coastal residents, boaters, fishermen, shellfish growers, small business owners, students, and others. Their work even saves lives. Almost 2,000 fishermen have been trained through WSG in marine safety, rescue, first aid, weather, and marine technology. Over 150,000 seabirds and albatross have been saved since the implementation of WSG streamer line adaptations and shellfish have directly benefited from WSG research and technological assistance. WSG has supported 477 university students and fellows through grants and fellowship programs and engaged over 30,000 K-12 students in beach walks, school events, festivals, and information education programs. The numbers don’t lie, and to say WSG had conducted substantial and impactful work for the state is an understatement. Over the years, Sea Grant established itself as a fundamental asset to the Washington marine ecosystem and a vital link for marine education. It would be impossible to fit all of WSG’s accomplishments into one article, but we’ve highlighted some key achievements.

Vessel Pumpouts - In 2016, the Washington Clean Vessel Act, a joint program of Washington State Parks, U.S. Fish and Wildlife and WSG, helped divert a record 10 million gallons of raw sewage from Puget Sound, Lake Washington, and other state waterways that previously would have been dumped into vulnerable waters. Instead it was collected for safe onshore treatment. This diversion was largely a result of training and outreach funded by U.S. Fish & Wildlife for the Pumpout Washington program, a branch of the Clean Vessel

Team staff, immediately responded to the initial detection with a rapid response trapping effort and is currently working on a plan with local stakeholders for ongoing response and removal efforts for the area. Appointed Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador - In March 2017, WSG was formally recognized as a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador by NOAA for its work in preparing coastal communities for hazardous weather. NOAA’s Weather-Ready Nation initiative seeks to improve the nation’s responsiveness

Based on what I learned in a Washington Sea Grant funding workshop, I was able to identify and then secure a Boating Facility Improvement Grant for the Leschi Marina valued at $2.5 million.

Act that provides outreach and education to boaters. Detection and Response to Invasive Green Crab Species - Staff and volunteers from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which manages Dungeness Spit National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), captured a total of 13 European green crabs over two weeks in April as part of WSG’s Crab Team early detection program. These numbers indicate that the invasive crabs are more abundant at Dungeness Spit than at the two other known locations in Washington’s inland waters.

and resilience to extreme weather, water, and climate events. Weather-Ready Nation Ambassadors are partner agencies, organizations, and businesses that share a commitment with NOAA to collaborate on outreach about extreme-weather preparedness and to serve as examples themselves by implementing resilience best practices. WSG is at the forefront of helping coastal communities and governments prepare for flooding, erosion, and other challenges associated with climate change. WSG Boating Specialist Aaron Barnett attributes the program’s key to success as having “boots in the mud.”

GET UP, GET INTO IT, GET INVOLVED. Interested in volunteering or learning more about Washington Sea Grant’s programs? Find them here: By physically getting outside, working, and being one-on-one with people in the community, awareness and impact is spread much farther. Barnett claims that these actions led to “65 new vessel pumpouts in the last year contributing to over 44 million gallons of sewage diverted into internal waters since 2010. Tens of thousands of boaters have been reached as a direct result of Washington Sea Grant’s initiatives.” Barnett is an excellent example of someone who is a perfect fit for WSG. A former Coast Guardsman, he joined Sea Grant in 2009 while he was a student at the School of Marine Affairs program at the University of Washington. His role began as a technical advisor for the new Clean Vessel Act pumpout campaign as he specialized in pumping systems to marine, aerospace, and even nuclear waste problems. One of the products Barnett provided was a pumpout system that he personally designed and installed across the West Coast from California to Alaska with most in Washington. He helped keep millions of gallons of raw sewage from being directly pumped into Washington’s waters. “I was drawn to Sea Grant because of the purposeful work and ability to get out into the community and be hands-on with the real issues,” says Barnett. Getting involved early is how WSG, in partnership with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other agencies, were able to detect and take immediate action to the invasive European green crab species. This crab looks unassuming, but they silently invade coastal communities far out of their native range through ocean currents and ship ballast water. Green crab devour marine organisms and vegetation leading to extreme losses in eelgrass and shellfish that would be devastating for Puget Sound. They have not been found in Washington’s inland waters, but WSG were the first discover green crab in Sooke Harbour Inlet near Victoria, B.C. Since this year’s monitoring kicked off in April, the Crab Team

has kept 22 sites under surveillance, with three more sites intended for monitoring before the summer is complete. This carefully targeted monitoring effort to catch infestations before they become a problem is crucial towards keeping these animals out of the Washington marine ecosystem. “If we don’t know where they are, then they have a much longer time frame to multiply and spread,” says project lead Jeff Adams, WSG’s marine ecologist. The Crab Team hopes to raise awareness, build support, and perhaps even attract more resources and prompt stronger regulations for invasive species prevention. This type of collaboration is the heart of what Washington Sea Grant’s work accomplishes. WSG experts provide scientific and technical assistance to resolve complex marine issues with focus on win-win solutions. By leveraging support, WSG brings academic, government, tribal, industry, and citizen scientists together to conserve and support coastal ecosystems.

HOW CAN I HELP? There are countless ways to get more information or volunteer through WSG. Their communications office maintains a publications database; produces and distributes informational brochures, pamphlets and books; creates public exhibits; and responds to media inquiries about WSG activities and research. For more information, go to the online press room (wsg.washington.edu). For press releases, story tip sheets, and mini-features about various Sea Grant projects around the na-

tion, visit the National Sea Grant Media Center (seagrant.noaa.gov). You can also subscribe to WSG’s newsletter Sea Star in either print or email format from their website. There are WSG-sponsored volunteer opportunities that can be accessed through their online calendar, including beach cleanups in July and August and Bellingham SeaFeast on September 22 and 23 of this year. Research or workshop mailing lists can be accessed through the “Contact Us” tab on their website. For Washington boaters, WSG is a true asset. For almost 50 years now, Sea Grant has facilitated sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, promoted healthy coastal ecosystems, improved resilience in communities and economies, and strengthened ocean literacy and workforce development. Their work deserves a tip of a hat if not a standing ovation for all they have accomplished for local communities and the state. With the help of Washington Sea Grant, the future looks bright for Washington’s much loved shores and cruising grounds now and for generations to come.

How a nearly century-old concept might transform sailing

The Vanishing Art of Celestial Navigation By Chris Couch

80 NORTHWEST YACHTING || JULY 2017


From the time mankind began our travels upon this planet, we observed and made note of our surroundings to aid us in our journeys There continues to be emerging evidence that over 15,000 years ago, during the last ice age, peoples from Europe followed the edge of the ice around the North Atlantic to the North American continent. These people later joined up with others who came from the west to become the Clovis people. There is also evidence that ancient Japanese peoples landed on the west coast of South America and that the Polynesians landed on the West Coast of the United States. The Phoenicians and then the Vikings landed on the East Coast of North America. All this occurred thousands of years before Columbus, and probably just the tip of the “History of Us” iceberg. It is certain that on a planet covered mostly by water, our legacy is tied to the sea. The first elements of navigation as we know it probably started in the Mediterranean with trade between emerging civilizations. The lighthouse and many shore aids to navigation owe their beginnings to this area. One of the earliest well-recorded voyages was by Greek astronomer and navigator Pytheas. Sometime between the years 350 and 300 BC, he sailed from a Mediterranean port to England and then on to Scotland, the Norwegian fiords, and northwest Germany. What makes this so significant is that Pytheas and other intrepid mariners of the time accomplished this with no compass, no sextant, and no timepieces. Although basic piloting along the coasts was used, there would have been many times when these ancient mariners lost sight of land. This is where their unique observations of the winds, seas, and stars allowed them safe return to port. For any person who has an interest in marine navigation and its history, The American Practical Navigator Volume I by Nathaniel Bowditch is highly recommended. Since it was first published in 1802, The American Practical Navigator has been the leading navigational text and reference. I started my marine career back in 1976 when I went into the United States Coast Guard right out of high school. I

consider myself very fortunate to have spent the first part of my marine career in the time before computers and GPS. When I first started to navigate ships, we used visual bearings. Using a device called a pylorus, we would sight a charted object and observe the compass bearing to it. We would then plot the bearing on a paper chart, which would become one line of position. We also used radar ranges from analog radar, again plotting those ranges, usually from a charted land mass. Radio beacons were tuned in using a radio direction finder to, once again, plot those bearings on a chart for a line of position. Using this variety of visual, radar, and radio bearings, we would get a “fix” or position. During that time for offshore navigation, we had the first short-range, landbased radio navigation system called LORAN-A, the first long-range, landbased radio system called OMEGA, and the first satellite navigation system called the Transit System. These first systems were for offshore only and had accuracy measured in miles. By the late 1970s, the next-generation land-based radio naviga-

tion system came online and it was called LORAN-C. It was accurate down to one half-mile but had good repeatability. Because of the inherent inaccuracies of these early systems, we also continued to use celestial navigation for offshore navigation and positioning offshore weather and research buoys. Yes, celestial navigation was still being used as a regular navigation tool up through the late 1970s. I wouldn’t see the first GPS receiver made by Magellan until 1985, still several years before the system was up and fully running. Just in my lifetime, we have gone from the simple radio direction finder to GPS; from large clumsy paper charts to computer-driven chart plotters to having the whole thing on your smart phone or iPad. We have gone from looking out at the world around us to staring inside at our screens. I have witnessed the vanishing of our navigational arts. It is probably a bit ironic that one of the most reliable tools we have in our pilot house is also the least used and most neglected: the magnetic compass. A needle thrust through a straw and floated in a

A LORAN-C receiver, circa 1980, is only one of the old tools we’re not using anymore. LORAN-C offered mariners better precision than its predecessors, but it was still imprecise beyond half a mile. (Photo: Dane Penland, Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum - NASM 2012-02114)

Paper charts are still commonplace for both professional and recreational mariners.

container of water is what describes the earliest “known” compass. When the magnetic compass was first used is unknown and there is very little to substantiate where it came from, although it’s widely believed that the Chinese developed it around 1,000 A.D. Today, the magnetic compass is our only non-electronic instrument to maintain directional orientation and remains the one instrument you can rely on when all else fails. The practice of visual observation to fix your position and follow your intended route is called “piloting” and still remains the fundamental basis of navigation. Piloting is the practice of correlating your surroundings with what you see on your chart. You then use this observation and correlation to fix and continually monitor your approximate position relative to the chart and safe water. With today’s technology however, I see too many boaters staring down at their chart plotters and not looking outside and observing the world around them. Practice identifying the buoys, lights, and landmarks that you see with what is on your chart and your radar. The more you do this, the more proficient a mariner and navigator you will become. Before GPS and chart plotters, we used paper charts upon which we would physically plot our observed lines of position to create a navigational fix. A “fix” is the intersection of at least three Lines of Position (LOP). A Line of Position can be a bearing to a charted object, or a radar range to a point of land or the beach. In LORAN-C, it was the time difference between a “master” and “slave” stations. In GPS, it is the time the signal takes to travel from the satellite to your receiver. Because there could be several hours between your plotted fixes, dead reckon-

ing was used to predict your approximate position into the future using your heading steered, estimated speed, and time. Dead reckoning was undoubtedly used the first time the earliest mariners sailed beyond the sight of land and up until the mid 1960s when OMEGA and LORAN-A became widely used. Since the early 1990s, we have pretty much been staring at our chart plotters. But from the beginning of modern people’s presence on this planet, we have looked to the sky to help find our way. Since that beginning and to this day, in a world where everything keeps moving and changing, there has been one object that has remained

When Polaris was first employed to determine latitude is not known. By the time of Columbus, some navigators utilized a specialized angle measuring instrument called the nocturnal to determine latitude. By the late 1500s, the nocturnal became more widespread. The second celestial body important to navigation was the sun. Since before the Common Era (BC), astronomers used daily observations to calculate the sun’s declination (its annual movement north and south of the equator). By the 15th century, experienced seamen were using the sun to determine their latitude at sea within a few degrees. This is called local apparent noon. When the sun is at the highest point in the sky, that is your local apparent noon (LAN) or zenith. At that moment, the sun’s angle to the horizon can be observed (height observed or HO) and then by applying its declination at that moment, your latitude can be determined. Up until a mere 250 years ago, the mariner could only accurately determine latitude on the open sea. The only way to cross oceans from point A to point B was to sail north or south to the latitude of your destination and then east or west until you arrived. This was called parallel sailing. The mariner had no way of accurately determining how far they had sailed east or west other than dead reckoning. Because of the inability to ac-

a fixed, steadfast beacon for us to follow. Positioned directly above our geographical North Pole, it is the North Star. Because of its fixed position in the sky, the North Star, or Polaris, was probably the first star used for marine navigation. Because Polaris happens to sit directly above the geographical North Pole, the observed angle (or height observed) between it and the visible horizon is also your latitude. The ability to determine latitude at sea has been around for thousands of years.

curately measure speed, estimates could be off by days or even weeks. The search to determine longitude had begun. Determining longitude requires knowing how far east or west you are from a known point, such as the prime meridian, to where the sun is positioned. To know the time the sun is at the prime meridian and the time where you are presently, time must be accurately measured to the second. An accurate and reliable time piece, or chronometer, was needed.


To encourage the development of this much needed way to keep time at sea, the Royal Navy and British Merchant Marine created The Board of Longitude in 1714 that offered a reward to anyone who could create a serviceable chronometer. The first crude timepiece was built in 1660, but it wouldn’t be until 1766, over 100 years later, that an accurate and reliable chronometer would be accepted and the prize awarded. This timepiece would become the basis of all chronometers for the next 200 plus years. With accurate time now available, point to point celestial navigation at sea was a possibility. Even though accurate time was now available, it wouldn’t be until 1837 or another 70 years before the celestial navigation that we are familiar with today would start being used. I remember back in the mid 1970s as a novice navigator, one of my daily duties was to wind the chronometer promptly at noon and record its deviation. Of course, today we have incredibly accurate time everywhere we look. The time display on your GPS is set by the Atomic Clock in Boulder, Colorado. At any moment in time, any celestial body (i.e., the sun, moon, planets, and stars) is directly overhead somewhere on the earth. Let’s use the sun as an example: at any moment in time, the sun is directly overhead (90 degrees) somewhere on the face of the planet. This spot is called its geographic position. This position can be described by the sun’s declination (similar to latitude) and by its Greenwich Hour Angle (GHA), which is similar to longitude. If we were standing directly under the sun at the exact moment it was 90 degrees overhead, that would also be our position on the earth in latitude and longitude. Declination is the position of the sun, north or south of the Equator, and equates to latitude. The earth is tilted on its axis at 23.5 degrees. As it orbits the sun, the sun’s geographic position to us earthlings moves north and south. It is at its furthest

north the first day of summer and furthest south the first day of winter. It is directly over the Equator or zero declination on the spring and fall equinoxes. GHA is the sun’s position west of the prime meridian at Greenwich, England, and equates to longitude. GHA will move 360 degrees every 24 hours. The geographic position of the sun, moon, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, and the navigational stars can all be described with declination (latitude) and GHA (longitude). Over hundreds of years and tens of thousands of observations, the tables containing all this information have been developed. Each year a nautical almanac is published with these tables, providing the necessary information to process your celestial navigation observation. Let’s presume that the sun is directly overhead. Its declination and GHA at that moment in time would be our position in latitude and longitude. In reality, it is unlikely we would happen to be so close to a celestial body’s geographic position. Let’s say our observation of the sun was 50 degrees above the horizon. The opposite angle would be 40 degrees. Each degree of arc is equal to 60 nautical miles, so 40 degrees times 60 nautical miles equals 2,400 nautical miles, meaning the distance from us to the sun’s geographical position is 2,400 miles. If you took a globe and scribbled a circle 2,400 nautical miles in diameter around the sun’s geographical position, that is called the circle of equal altitude. We are somewhere on that circle. That is one line of position. In the early 1600s, a navigator named Pedro Nunes plotted circles of equal altitude on a globe to fix his position. You can imagine the inherent inaccuracy of trying to do that. Just the width of the line he would draw would represent several miles. It wouldn’t be until nearly 1850, only 167 years ago, that a method would be developed to plot a small section of the circle of equal altitude on a regular navigational chart. This would be called

Sextants are no less effective than they were in the ancient days when they were cutting edge technology. Being familiar with how to use one is both rewarding and positive for a mariner’s growth.

Pedro Nunes is memorialized at the Padrão dos Descobrimentos (monument of the discoverers) in Lisbon, Portugal.

the Altitude Intercept Method and is the method still in use today. Of course, now we have apps for your smart device that will do all of the calculations for you. You just plug in the height observed along with date, time, and your assumed position and it will spit out the line of position for you. For those who are truly interested in learning more about celestial navigation, I recommend the book the Naval Academy uses, Marine Navigation 2 Second Edition by Richard Hobbs. I have also published a book that will introduce you to the basics called The Lost Horizon that can be found on Compassheadingspublishing.com or at Amazon.com. For good or bad, with constantly evolving technology, it has not taken us very long to bypass methods and practices that guided our voyages for millenia. From the beginning of our presence on this planet, we have looked to the sky to help find our way. The stars are what we are made of and where we came from. They will always be there to guide us.

RACING SHEET

Old Favorites Words: Doug Hansen // Photos: Jan Andersen Swiftsure International Yacht Race marks the officially unofficial start to the summer sailing season in the Northwest and this year’s race continued the tradition. Hosted by the Royal Victoria Yacht Club, this legendary race brings yachts from throughout the Pacific Northwest to compete in the venerable event. Attracting 175 registered boats this year, the event has evolved over the years to provide racing crews with options from the Juan de Fuca race course, up to the 118 nautical-mile Hein Bank course that the ORC 0 big boat fleet takes on. A long weekend in Victoria is always a treat and being able to see some

close friends and do some racing has made this race one of my favorites of the year. Racing got underway Saturday morning, May 27, with the Canadian Coast Guard putting on a show, firing their main gun to signal the start of each fleet. This year’s forecast called for light air for the start with a westerly wind filling in towards the afternoon that was slotted to hold for the rest of the evening. Ripping currents pushing the fleet towards Race Rocks and variable wind shifts made connecting the dots from puff to puff imperative. It paid to be on the left, and then paid to be on the right, and many found themselves to be chasing

a puff only to miss the next shift. Charlie Macaulay’s Farr 39 Absolutely played this portion well and edged in to be one of the first boats to reach Race Rocks ahead of several of the ORC 0 monsters. As the fleet was spit out into the Straits of Juan De Fuca, the wind went away to nothing and it was a battle of setting up for the very slowly filling westerly that was working its way down the Straits. While a light breeze took several boats into the Canadian shore in search of some local knowledge, the westerly had begun to gently fill in the middle of the Straits. Working towards the American shoreline for more favorable current, the leaders of each fleet could firmly establish themselves upwind of their competition. Working up towards Clallam Bay, a thick fog descended on the shoreline,

making for some nervous navigators as short tacking the beach was essential to stay out of the building currents farther out in the Straits. As the Hein Bank and Cape Flattery fleets rounded the Canadian Coast Guard Ship moored off Neah Bay, the wind began to steadily build into the high teens. This sleigh ride down the Straits is what keeps many racers coming back year after year. As the wind topped out at just over 20 knots, several tight gybing duels ensued as boats worked their way back east towards the light of Victoria. At one point the northern lights shimmered above Victoria while phosphorescence glowed in boats’ wakes. Without a doubt, the tight racing and amazing conditions marks this as one of my favorite kite runs I can recall. While it felt like the fun of the spinnaker run would never end, unfortunately it was not to be, and all boats found themselves parked in no wind, struggling to finish the race at the Victoria Harbor entrance. As with any

Hein Bank Race (ORC)

overnight race competing in the dark, there is always a balance of pushing yourself just as hard as your competition, but being conscious of where the edge is. This year’s race challenged several boats on this front, resulting in some dramatic lead changes as the race neared the end. John Buchan’s Trans Pac 52 Glory was a prime example of a well-executed overnight plan, going from very deep in the pack to a line honors finish in ORC 0 by paying close attention to the dying breeze and wind shifts all the way to the end of the race. Boats continued to trickle into the finish well into Sunday afternoon, and the dock was full of chatting sailors enjoying some well-deserved beers. With all the struggle and hardship that a race like this takes out of crews, it is sometimes important to remind ourselves that sailboat racing is not a lapse of judgment, it’s a lifestyle choice.

P RTS OF CALL

Wanderlust There are so many different nooks and crannies in Roche Harbor that aimless exploration is a must. Simply starting at the marina and allowing one’s feet to roam of their own accord yields all kinds of rewards. Bocce ball courts sit in the shadows of the great lime kiln ruins near the hotel, and forested trails branch off in all directions. Boats of all kinds move in and out of the harbor, and wedding receptions gather in the aromarich Sunken Garden (in bloom April through October). Simply step off the boat and get whisked away for a while. You’ll be glad you did.

Spa Treatment Words & Photos: Norris Comer Roche Harbor is a familiar name to many Salish Sea travelers. Tucked in the Northwest corner of San Juan Island and sitting only a few nautical miles east of the Canadian border, the unincorporated territory is strategically placed for boaters venturing to or from the waters of British Columbia. A village of attractions beckons from the shore, the beating heart of which is the Roche Harbor Resort and accompanying marina. One only needs to stroll about the brick streets and forested trails of the area during the summer to understand why many yacht brokers hold their annual rendezvous here. The Roche Harbor Resort hub is essentially a blend of an old-timey settlement and a San Juan-themed Disneyland. The area is steeped in fascinating history going back to the Salish Sea peoples. The Hotel de Haro, a mainstay of the Roche Harbor Resort, is built upon the site of a Hudson Bay Company log house that dated back to 1845-1850. The hotel was built around the original log structure by local tycoon John S. McMillin in 1886, and one can still see signs of the original building within. Overgrown, castle-like structures of old lime kilns still stand, built by British Lieutenant Richard Roche (for whom the harbor is named) to keep the Royal Marines occupied. The limestone business was later taken over by McMillin and turned into a thriving business until the 1930s. All this history blends with the contemporary accommodations of the resort. Electronic golf carts whizz between catered events, and local artisans peddle their paintings to the flocks of tourists. It’s historic, yet it’s modern. It’s secluded, yet it’s bustling. It’s Roche Harbor. For arriving boaters, Roche Harbor is best tackled by daylight. The east to west ferry lane that connects Sidney, B.C. to Anacortes, Washington, is always something for the skipper to keep his or her eye on, and the harbor’s excellent protection from the elements is partly due to a handful of islands that shelter it. One can approach from the north or south side of San Juan Island, but be familiar with the charts. The northern approach is cluttered with Barren Island and Posey Island (a state park), and one must go either east or west of Pearl Island to get into Roche Harbor. The southern approach involves navigating up Mosquito Pass between Henry Island to the west and San Juan Island to the east. Look out for little Pole Island that sits right in the middle of the pass. Once inside Roche Harbor, the boater has made it to one of the area’s great protected anchorages. A customs office operates from the marina and will be the gateway to the United States if need be.

You’ve come all this way, why not treat yourself? The Afterglow Spa is a part of the Roche Harbor Resort and offers just about everything one needs to be pampered. Ever had a eucalyptus herbal bath? Well, they are delightful. Whether you just want a gentleman’s hot towel facial or a couple’s massage, the spa has got you covered. Check out the spa’s full list of offerings at rocheharbor.com. The spa is located on the first floor of the Quarryman Hall building.

Sculptures Galore Located just up Reuben Memorial Drive from the marina is the San Juan Islands Sculpture Park and Nature Reserve. This 20-acre park has over 150 sculptures connected by five different trails, more than enough to eat up an afternoon for art aficionados or hobbyist shutterbugs. The visitor never really knows what’s going to be around the bend as he or she follows winding trails through forests, across fields, and around picturesque ponds. Buddhist prayer wheels with Pacific Northwest twists and pieces inspired by local fauna sit next to abstract human forms. Check it out if you have the chance.

Water bound The best part about visiting an island is that one is surrounded by water. Why not make the most of it? Roche Harbor and the nearby islands and bays are perfect for exploring. Kayak rentals are readily available at the marina entrance for those in need. Whatever your vessel of choice, be it the yacht’s dinghy or a paddleboard, the usually calm waters of Roche Harbor await. Curious harbor seals and soaring bald eagles are common sights. A note of caution: be mindful of private property, for the locals don’t usually appreciate trespassers and public lands are not always clearly marked. Also, don’t be overly noisy on the water, for the sound carries far.

Local Goods Roche Harbor offers a lot of local goods, in the forms of both flavors and crafts. The covered booths of local artists and more often frequent the marina entrance in the mornings. If you haven’t had anything from the Friday Harbor House of Jerky, a regular at Roche Harbor, then you are missing out. Feeling in the mood for elk or bison? They’ve got you covered. If you yearn for fresh caught local seafood, North Sound Seafood is located in the marina right next to their fishing boat. A tank with live prawns is a giveaway and they sell pretty much whatever is in season, from salmon to crab. The arts and flavors of the islands are yours.

A visiting boater could treat Roche Harbor as a temporary stopover as part of a longer adventure or a launch pad to San Juan Island. There’s plenty to see in the area, especially if one has access to a bicycle. The John S. McMillin Memorial Mausoleum is a relatively short walk from the resort hub and is worth the trek. English Camp is operated by the National Park Service and is a few miles south. The camp is where the English were garrisoned back in the days when the territory was still contested with the United States. A shuttle service operates out of Roche Harbor and can connect visitors with the rest of the island, like the town of Friday Harbor across the island. It is a great way to get out of the Roche Harbor hub and explore. San Juan Island is a destination unto itself.

There are a few food options near the Roche Harbor Marina that hit different price brackets. The Lime Kiln Café is a soup and sandwich countertop establishment on the landing near the fuel dock. The BLAT (bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato) sandwich can really hit the spot [$12.95]. The Madrona Bar & Grill and McMillin’s Dining Room are other nearby dining options that are progressively more upscale. The Company Store is the grocery store in the middle of the hub and is the go-to for those who aren’t sick of cooking in the galley. Hard cider fans may want to take the pilgrimage to nearby Westcott Bay Cider for a refreshing pint (westcottbaycider.com).

CARBON FIBER F E AT U R I N G

KRIS AND KIM HENDERSON

“ Whatever has happened in my quest for innovation has been part of my quest for immaculate reality."

—George Lucas

W KRIS AND KIM HENDERSON Kris and Kim Henderson, owners of Henderson Boat Works, are a husbandand-wife duo who has worked together at Henderson Boat Company for eight years. The two have their system dialed in; Kim designs and cuts parts down to millimeter accuracy, stocks them up, puts them in labeled packages, and then lays out the parts in order for Kris to assemble. The pair have a lot of fun building things together and even have their own lingo. For example, 0-90 carbon fiber weave is known as “pretty” in Kim speak. The two are also avid sailboat racers, especially of I-14 sailboats.

88 NORTHWEST YACHTING || JULY 2017

When one hears the term carbon fiber, spectacular images of sleek racing sailboats and big-money modern yachts come to mind. Carbon fiber as a building material represents the leading edge of what is possible, somehow lighter than fiberglass yet stronger than steel (and usually more expensive than both combined). The material is all the rage within the highprofile racing circuits like the America’s Cup and for those who can afford it on the recreational side. Surely with all the hype and investment from high-profile clients, top-tier carbon fiber components and builds are in the domain of big corporations and factory assembly lines, right? My visit to Henderson Boat Company, the Seattle shop that builds anything with composites or carbon fiber from world-class I-14 racing sailboats to satellite components, proves otherwise. Tucked among commercial canning facilities near the industry dominated shores of southern Salmon Bay, the business is housed in a modest metal structure no larger than a house that used to be the paint shed of CSR Marine when they operated at

that location. There is no bustling horde of hired employees here, for Henderson Boat Company is owned and operated by a husband and wife, Kris and Kim Henderson, who also live in the shop. Don’t be fooled by the modest appearance professional talent lies within. Kris’ professional racing and design background range from designing and building America’s Cup boats to the new groundbreaking Bieker 6s. Kim was the chief engineer aboard a Dutch Harbor commercial crabbing vessel before meeting Kris and teaming up. I was fortunate enough to sit down with the dynamic duo at their shop to learn more about carbon fiber, modern building and design techniques, and the business. If you want something built to compete at the leading edge, you may want to give the Hendersons a call. Q: Your bread and butter seems to be the racing scene. What’s unique with what you do? Yup, racing sailboats are what we like to do best, but we’ll do all kinds of custom jobs. We build I-14s internationally, that’s a big part of what we do. As far as racing sailboats go and what we do uniquely, we take Paul Bieker’s designs and bring them to life with a carbon fiber and vacuum bagging process with high tech resins. That’s the leading edge right now. We do a lot of custom stuff. A guy just called me and he wanted to put a water ballast system in his Melges 24. What a crazy idea! But my response is pretty much always, “Ok, get the drawings, I’ll look at them, and we’ll figure it out. We’ll do it, but we’re busy until October

so you can get in line!” Q: How about you take us from the beginning. I want to upgrade something on my boat to carbon fiber and…? We start with measuring and designing. Right now we’re building a custom carbon fiber bowsprit, and we start by measuring the dimensions. I send my files to an outside expert to digitize the drawings with CADD (computeraided design and drafting). Our CADD design is done by Brad Davis up in Port Townsend. I’ll send him some files on a computer, and he can digitize the design in three dimensions. He can also cut the mold shape. Kim and I will refinish it: coat it with epoxy, wax it, clean it, and get it all polished up. Then we’re off making parts. We make the parts, the shape, fair, paint, clear coat. We do a lot of different things. One aspect of what we do is that everything we make is 100% American made, mostly from the Pacific Northwest. We work with other maritime businesses in Hood River, Anacortes, and more depending on the job. Q: It sounds like a lot of groundwork is laid outside of the shop, but you bring together the components as craftspeople to make a boat out of it? Yup, basically. There’s a tight community around here. Between Kim and I, we basically work by ourselves. At times we bring in others to help out. There are lots of subcontractors around here, “I need three guys next week” kind of deal. I was one of the top people building the Cascadia, the Shumaker 87-foot boat now out of Shilshole Bay Marina. We built that boat right after we got back from America’s


Cup, and there were probably 75 people working on the boat. Once we tap into the people of the Pacific Northwest, we know the painters, the wiring guys… we always have “our guy” handy. Now that the boat is done, they contact me for new pods for the electronics or what have you for the owner. Q: How labor intensive is working with carbon fiber? It’s about the same as fiberglass but more technical. It’s important to orient the fibers correctly. Carbon fiber is more of a structural membrane than other materials. You can’t just throw it together like mat fiberglass because carbon fiber has to utilize the directional strengths of the different weaves. You got to get it right to the T. There are three different fibers. The first is the finish cloth, and that’s usually a 0-90 (referring to the degree of the angle of the fibers of the weave to each other). The next we call bi-axe, it’s biaxial, the layers are going 45 degrees from each other. The last layer is called unidirectional, and that’s where the fibers only run one direction and are stitched together. You basically make a sandwich of the different fibers. Q: Do most components have all the different kinds of fiber in it? That depends on how strong the piece needs to be. It’s really easy to overbuild something, especially in the racing world. You want to keep the weight and strength ratio just right with no excess weight. If it breaks, just make it a smidge more built next time. According to my friend (and racing legend) Ian Murray, the rules of the perfect America’s Cup boat is that you race in the America’s Cup, you cross the finish line to win the race, and as you’re sailing to the dock, it starts to crack and sink. Just as you get to the dock and step off, it sinks behind you. Then you’ve built the perfect America’s Cup boat. Kim and I try to work very hard not to let any of our stuff break, but that happens in this industry when you’re pushing the leading edge. At the recent European Championship it was blowing 30 to 35 knots and like half the boats couldn’t race with broken rudders, masts, etc.

Q: How do you approach a job? Is there a process or a philosophy? Honestly, a lot of the time I don’t even want to touch a job, but you know, I always say “we’ll figure it out, we can do it” and then start scratching my head about how to do it. It always comes together some way or another. Q: I’ve heard about a few of Henderson Boat Company’s “other” projects. Wasn’t there some kind of house or something? We do a lot of other things. A sailing I-14 guy who lives in Breckenridge, Colorado, called up about making a carbon fiber super camper. There are these all-terrain campers that can go anywhere or do anything, but they are these big heavy beasts of metal and whatnot. Why can’t we build one out of carbon fiber and divinycell foam just like a boat? And then design the interior to be like a sea-going boat with load cell batteries and an inverter and solar panels on the roof and LED systems and the whole thing would run itself. It’d be super light. So we built the box out of carbon fiber. We had to change our whole shop, build a 28-foot flat to vacuum down these long carbon fiber panels we had to make. It was wild. Q: Is one of these things driving around? Almost! They are going to pick up their I-14 and head on over. It’s going to be awesome! Each carbon fiber body we made will weigh almost nothing, like 75 pounds. Game changer. For a while we had all these flat panels everywhere and Kim kept saying

Above we see a close-up of a cross section of the deck of a Bieker 6 under construction. Clamps like the one in the picture are commonly used in order to help adhere elements of a build together during a glue cycle.

we’re building flat boats now. Whatever it is, we do a bunch of diverse things. Q:I bet you could take your racing roots to apply to all kinds of things. Yup, this last fall we had a project from Google. They had us make a bunch of parts for this crazy “smart” tethered kite that that flies way up in the atmosphere in search of the jet stream. It has propellers on it that produces electricity that it sends back to Earth via carbon fiber rods to a wheel… it’s wild. At the time, we didn’t know what we were making and they didn’t tell us until the very end. We built all the housings for the wheel and the whole thing is the size of that trailer. We couldn’t even tell anybody about it! Turns out we were basically making a spaceship. I’ve also done satellite stuff occasionally with Lund Engineering (Seattle). They show up and say “hey, this is going on a satellite,”

and we’ll ask what kind and they’ll say “just build it.” Continued on Page 95

HENDERSON BOAT COMPANY Kris Henderson started Henderson Boat Company in 1989 and began working with the newly founded CSR Marine on Synergy sailboats. Kris joined an Olympic sailing campaign and became an Olympic coach before called to work for Oracle and an America’s Cup campaign. Kim Henderson was the chief engineer of a commercial crabbing vessel in Alaska before teaming up with Kris at Henderson Boat Company around eight years ago. They now build just about anything carbon fiber that clients request, from satellite components to electronic pods for sailboat electronics, in their Seattle shop.

Kevin’s Catch By Kevin Klein

Continued from Page 57

Albacore fishing off the coast should be in full swing by the first week in July. When the warmer blue water gets close enough, the tuna usually cooperate. Watching wave height, swell duration, and wind speed is key for safety in this fishery. Coming back across the Grays or Columbia bars on an ebb tide can be gnarly even with no wind, and flat out impossible with bad weather. You never know when something could kick up or go wrong 40 nautical miles out either. Know before you go! Dungeness crab will open many places in our area in July. There is no better summer activity than catching a

limit of Dungies and having a big crab feed for dinner. Salmon heads and carcasses work great for bait. Let nothing go to waste! Last, but not least, have a great Independence Day with family and friends. We’ll be on a Parker Boats float with Salmon For Soldiers at the Friday Harbor Fourth of July parade. Salmon For Soldiers is a top notch organization that takes returning veterans fishing. They can always use our help and support. Please go to salmonforsoldiers.com for more information. Thanks, and until next month…let’s get out and go get some! Left: We’ll be heading back to Tahsis, B.C. this month for another haul like this! Right: Dungeness Crab will be on July’s menu for sure!

Pets on Boats

Enzo is a four-year-old Shih Tzu pictured here aboard Lucky Dog, a 44-foot Tiara Coupe, at an Alexander Marine Rendezvous at Roche Harbor on San Juan Island. He is often found aboard modeling safe boating practices with his life jacket. The idea behind Pets on Boats is simple: Take a cute or funny photo of your pet aboard your favorite boat, scribble down a funny photo caption, and send it to us with a bio of the pet at editorial@nwyachting.com. We collect images with captions, and our staff selects the best submission. Each monthly winners will have the honor of seeing their pet photo and caption run in an upcoming issue of the magazine, and will also receive a Northwest Yachting care package.

Play Time! Sometimes a pooch just wants a floating space to play from, and the DoggyMat Plus is just that. It’s made especially tough to handle FiFi’s sharp little nails. The plus model is $594, check it out at thewatermat.com.

guys started to pull away, so we built something that costs 25k to compete. Now, these Bieker 6s are beating the 60k boats, and people love them because they are purposefully easier to sail. It’s great to see the design take off. The first boat we sold in Toronto, the guy went on to win the Canadian National Championship, and then came back the next year and won it again. We’re also building carbon fiber shrouds. They sell this protruding carbon rod material to us and NASA, basically. The differences between these and stainless steel wire shrouds are unbelievable. These guys want to push it right to the end and show up to the world’s championship with the world’s greatest thing. The money is not a problem for these guys. Q: Any final bits of advice? I guess I’d say we can’t rush

Kris Henderson poses by the carbon fibre nose of a Bieker 6 under construction. A retractable bow sprit will ultimately be housed within the hollow space pictured below.

the process. Sometimes the material just needs to cure for a while and there’s nothing we can do to rush it. Boeing uses the lingo “glue cycles” for time, so when a project manager comes in because his eye is on the deadline, the workers can convey the time needed to finish. I get calls from guys wanting something in the next day, and you just can’t rush that stuff.

Q: Can you speak to the Bieker 6 design and what’s in store for the Henderson Boat Company? Our Bieker 6 design is the evolution of Paul Bieker’s America’s Cup winning multihull design to utilize the catamaran wave piercing bow. He came up with this idea with a fuller, or plumb, bow with a bulbous nose. In light air, it reminds us of a big tanker that has a bulb on the front. At the same time, in heavy air, there’s so much fullness in the bow that it lifts the bow up. It’s an innovative design because of the hull shape. It’s easier to sail and at the same time we wanted to make it simple to rig and not cost an arm and a leg. There are these guys who build these complicated, high tech boats that cost $60k, and the I-14 fleet in Toronto was dividing with the older Bieker 2s and 3s. The new

I placed my ad on January 5, why is it not in the January issue? The deadline for ad submission is the 5th of each month for the NEXT month’s issue. In the above example, the January issue would have come out on January 1st. You cannot retroactively place an ad in a magazine that has already been printed.

What is the best way to ensure that my ad ends up in the issue I want it in? Sometimes snail mail submissions arrive too late to be put in the issue for which they were intended. The most efficient way to place your classified ad is to use the very simple form on our website. Just go to the Place a Classified section, upload your photo, type up your copy, and pay via Paypal (you do not need to have a Paypal account to do this, just a viable credit card).

I placed an “Until it Sells” ad, why has my ad been removed from the magazine? If you refer to our “Place a Classified” page, you’ll see that the “Until it Sells” ad will run up to 6 months. However, if the boat sells BEFORE that six months is up, we will remove the ad per the client’s request. The benefit of an “Until it Sells” ad is that you’re paying only $100 more than a one month ad for up to five more months.
