So, leaving Diana onboard the Roger Henry in the Poulsbo Marina, I set out for Anacortes, Washington, in an old wreck of a car to rendezvous with sailing friends, Cathy and Herve Burnel. Diana and I first met them in St. Petersburg, Florida, where we were preparing for an Arctic adventure, and they were fitting out their racing sloop for extended cruising. We next met in Puerto Rico, and then again in Annapolis, where they ran the Sun Charter Operations. Their switch to multi-hulls apparently only fed their need for speed. They relocated to Washington so that they could sail summers and ski winters. Somebody has to do it.
