In the wake of a couple of weeks of challenging winter weather, a group of radio control sailors gathered Sunday at Seafarers’ Memorial Park. Among those pictured here are Anacortes Radio Control Sailing (ARCS) co-founder Julian Lee and two-year sailing enthusiast Bryan Reightley. Some of the sailors also enjoy their hobby with the Deception Pass Model Yacht Club, racing at venues including Bowman Bay.
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
