Mark Dix, one of Seattle's legends in long distance windsurfing, is attempting to sail the first leg of the Race to Alaska event. Forty miles of open water through the Straights of Juan de Fuca: massive rollers, strong currents, killer whales, and two international freighter lines. After the crossing he will have to paddle upwind (no sailing in the Victoria Harbor) in order to reach the finish line. Go Mark!!!
Wednesday: Wildflowers, summer weather, wind.
