Wild weekend

Wild weekend

One week ago the community of Anacortes came alive with boaters and fishermen. Hundreds came to town for the Anacortes Salmon Derby, sponsored by the Fidalgo-San Juan Island Chapter of the Puget Sound Anglers. Others took part in the annual Tulip Regatta sponsored by the Anacortes Yacht Club. Early Sunday afternoon I returned to Cap Sante Marina from fishing in the San Juans. On Fidalgo Bay I encountered regatta competitors, one of which was the “Wild Rumpus,” owned by Andy and Stephanie Schwenk. It was a wild, windy weekend for sailing. As it turns out, this boat finished first in the 73 Fleet. A Whidbey friend, Jason Joiner, finished third in his division with “Mayhem.” Congratulations to all who braved the weather for a great Northwest adventure!

About Photographer Steve Berentson

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.
