Winter Vashon 2011

This year the Winter Vashon Race out of Tacoma Yacht Club will be going the opposite direction from all years in the past. Some sailors like it and some don’t. The general opinion has always been that the current in Colvos Passage always runs North so the Island has always been taken to starboard.
With the modernization in navigation like GPS and current models it has shown that this is not necessarily true and with North wind predicted for Saturday it could be a great choice.
