Lopez Island Circumnavigation

We will launch from Washington Park in Anacortes on Friday afternoon and do the 3nm crossing to Spencer Spit State Park on Lopez Island.  

On Saturday we will circumnavigate Lopez Island clockwise.  We will paddle along the exposed south shore of Lopez and through Cattle Pass on the flood.  Expect (and enjoy!) tide rips, whirlpools, and boils.  Wear chaps and spurs to kick your boat into high speed.  And a dry suit of course.  Total distance around Lopez is about 22 nm.

We will paddle back to Anacortes on Sunday.

Other options: 
1) take the ferry to Lopez Island Friday evening and return Saturday night.
2) If few people are interested in a ferry-free weekend, which allows us to use the CMT site, we could take the ferry to Lopez on Saturday, circumnavigate and return on Sunday.  Camping reservations will be required in this case.
