The last part of our ride was much more pleasant. We had 20-25kts of wind from the ESE and we were making 8-10knots with occasional bursts to 12 knots as we rode the waves. We were able to see the island of Anatom as the moon was setting while we were 15 or so miles out. By the time we reached 6 miles out the moon was set. We could still make out a vague shadow against the startlit night sky.
Fortunately, our charts were accurate and matched our radar image of the island exactly. We stayed a safe 2 miles off shore as we rounded the SW corner of the island. We continued sailing until we rounded the corner. The port engine started fine, but when I went to start the starboard engine it wouldn’t start. We will have to investigate that tomorrow. Going on one engine was not a problem. We could see Stray Kitty’s anchor light, and their AIS beacon on the chart. They had sent us an E-mail and suggested we park behind them, so we did.
We anchored at 3:30 AM. Going to bed now.
