I've sailed on a friend of a friend's J42 out of Cascade Locks, but haven't taken our boat there yet. We might trailer up and sail down someday.Tomfoolery wrote: ↑Tue Jan 21, 2020 9:36 amThat's a pretty long trip. Too bad you couldn't go.C Buchs wrote: ↑Tue Jan 21, 2020 9:25 amNot too many trips on the boat this year. We had planned a trip down the Columbia River from our home (The Port of Camas/Washougal) to Astoria, but there were some nasty storms that moved through the weekend that we were planning to go. Therefore we took a day trip up the Columbia River Gorge to Beacon Rock.
If you ever go the other way, to or through the Cascade Locks, there's a butt-ugly gray-painted crane bolted to a 10 ft diameter beer can. I did that. Or parts of it, many many many moons ago.
We had set aside 4 days for the Astoria trip. I'm working on a plan to try it again this year. We're hoping to fit it in July or August so that we have a better chance at good weather.
