Passing Willapa Bay & Cape Shoalwater, Kinetic V Is In the Lead!

This is not a very inviting place for racing sailboats; a good number of the lead boats are sailing close by the entrance of Willapa Bay, known to have breaking waves in and around the mouth. It looks as if the lead boats are making good time; Kinetic is reporting speeds of 7.8 knots. Time to move off the coast a little bit for a little comfort...the strengthening flood tide is not something to mess with if the breeze shuts down....
