Jetty Island slalom launch


This shot was taken by Michael O'Leary, a photojournalist for the Everett Herald, when I made my way across the channel to the island yesterday (see previous post). You can see that the tide is *really low* at this point - which means that wind on the water was a bit obstructed. Even with the tide and the current from the Snohomish River outflow combining, though, the breeze was strong enough (and northerly enough) to make it over to the island in one tack. Sure beats paddling ;)

Thanks for the picture, Michael!
