Sailing Fidalgo Bay: 2012

Busy intersection

Saturday morning was beautiful, even if the sun didn’t fully cooperate. A number of sailboat owners took the opportunity to enjoy some time on the water. This photograph was taken from Cap Sante, near the “intersection” of Fidalgo Bay and the Guemes Channel.

Sunday sail

It was exciting Sunday morning to discover this boat coming into Anacortes under sail. More often than not, sailboats motor in and out of Cap Sante Marina. Makes one wish one was a boat owner…

Visible in the foreground are wrapped, tubular sections of wind tower columns being produced by T Bailey crews here in Anacortes.

On this evening we watched as city Park and Recreation Department employees put a group of young students through the paces just offshore on Fidalgo Bay.
