Here is our fabulous itinerary
Monday, June 20: Destination Port Ludlow
Depart at 10:00 AM. Destination Port Ludlow. Distance is approximately 29 miles. Port Ludlow has a pump out and fuel. Gather on the deck at 17:00 for barbequed hamburgers and hot dogs. Bring a side to go with our barbeque. Port Ludlow is home to the wood electric pump out boat “Clean Harbor” built at the Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building. We will have had the opportunity to pump out our holding tanks on Sunday morning at Bell Harbor, but if anyone wants to try the new pump out boat we will see if it is available on Monday. Also, the dock has a pump out facility.
Tuesday, June 21: Destination Pleasant Harbor
Depart Ludlow at 10:00 AM destination is Pleasant Harbor Marina. Distance is 25.4 miles. Happy Hour on the dock, bring an appetizer and a beverage to share. We are arranging with some members of Pleasant Harbor Yacht Club to give us a ride to the grocery store for re-provisioning. Details to follow. Pleasant Harbor Marina has a very shallow entrance. But we will arrive about 3 hours before low tide and the tide isn’t too low that day in any event.

Enjoy Alderbrook Resort. People may come down and see our boats as I arranged for “winter” moorage rates in exchange for our boats being on display.
