A Pleasant Trip North?

With landmark names along the way such as "The Graveyard of the Pacific", "Destruction Island" & "Cape Disappointment", the CYC Oregon Offshore International Yacht Race is not for the light-hearted!

Pictured: Destruction Island located off of the Washington coast. The island is a hazard to navigation along the route of the CYC Oregon Offshore International Yacht Race and is usually passed at night.

Want a better view of Destruction Island from land?

Try the Kalaloch lodge in the Olympic National Park on the Washington Coast, it doesn't get much more remote than this!
