In September 2012, we went on a very lovely fall cruise in our Albin 25 down through the Gulf Islands, the San Juan Islands and part of the way down Puget Sound to Seattle. This was the furthest south we have travelled by boat. It took us 3 weeks to get there and back. The weather (except for a couple of days) was perfect - sunny and calm. We joined the Albineers for the Fall Redezvous in roche Harbor. While we were in Anacortes, we had solar power installed on Skol.
