The big boat was nice but we still missed ours, so we rushed north to Anacortes to see her first chance we got. I had high hopes for the weekend we'd sail 18 miles and spend our first night at anchor, it's always good to have a plan. In reality we left extremely late (we had been on the boat for 3 weeks) sailed 7 miles, learned how to use Big Ray the autopilot, tried to flood the boat again (thankfully we have a reliable bilge pump, counter's up to 38) and returned to the marina at the end of the day.
Despite not realizing our initial plan, it was still a weekend on the boat and we learned valuable lessons like we really need to figure out how to leave/return to the dock and before heading out it's a good idea to close the galley and head sink seacocks (or the boat floods).
All in all a good weekend, I'm already making plans to for our first night at anchor next weekend, though this time it will be a little closer to home.
