2016-33: Coos Bay to Crescent City

October 12, 2016 6AM:

It's a fine morning out here in the Pacific just a few miles west of Bandon, Oregon.  We woke up our boat neighbors as we motored out of Coos Bay this morning at 3:50AM.  Outside the ocean was, and continues to be, f-l-a-t.  Just perfect for motoring boating with less than 5 knots of breeze and visibility over 20 miles, as we could see the Cape Blanco light at 21 miles.

We expect this day to be our last ocean cruise for a week while a BIG Pacific storm sweeps into the northwest, the remnants of an Asian typhoon.  Winds over 40 knots and waves approaching 20-feet will keep us in port until Wednesday or Thursday next week.  We expect that port to be Crescent City at around 5PM today.

10:40AM Update:

This humpback fin fight was just occurring off  the
Rogue River Reef
