Coos Bay, Oregon

November 8, 2014
Coos Bay, Oregon

Made the 81 nautical mile run from Newport to Coos Bay arriving in the final tinges of twilight.  Beautiful clear blue skies and comfortable seas for the entire ride.  For 1 hour we had nice easterly winds and hoisted full sail running close to the beach making 9-10 knots, otherwise it was motor sailing.

Heading out of Coos Bay

The fuel dock is closed on Sunday, however the owner said he might be in early in the morning to do some paperwork or maybe we stay for another night?

Update:  The owner Mr. Russell (84 years old) made a special trip down to sell us 39 gallons of fuel!  One thing we already miss about cruising is the focus on people.  Mr. Russell had all the time in the world to chat and enjoy the moment and a beautiful sunrise over Coos bay as we fueled up.
