To promote the appreciation of sailing and foster a community and culture committed to advancing both sailing and sailing education in the Juneau area.
As a part of their continuing educational series called 'Sailors Talk', SEAS, the SouthEast Alaska Sailors, are being given a tour of the Juneau Coast Guard Communications Center on April 5th.
Starting at 10:00 a.m. between the Committee boat and the Marmion Island Day Mark, the boats will sail ONE of these courses:
A. North into Taku Inlet rounding the buoy off Jaw Point on a starboard tack , returning and crossing an imaginary line bearing 020 magnetic to Sheep Creek Light in Gastineau Channel (line up the Light with the middle of the Sheep Creek Bridge).
Starting at 10:00 a.m. between the Committee boat and the Marmion Island Day Mark, proceed north into Stephens Passage, down the back side of Douglas Island, finishing within ½-mile of the small island just past Point Young in Admiralty Cove, on an imaginary line bearing 280 magnetic to Scull Island. Plan to anchor in Admiralty Cove overnight, with beach bonfire (weather permitting).
Leg 1 (Saturday) - Starting at 9:30 a.m. between the Committee Boat (or, for late arrivals, the last satellite earth station at the end of the Rock Dump) and the Mayflower Island Day Mark, proceed south down Gastineau Channel, then south across Taku Inlet, into Stephens Passage passing Grand Island to either port or starboard (Skipper’s choice), finishing ½-mile off the entrance to Taku Harbor on an imaginary line bearing 030 magnetic to the Graves Point marker.
