Where and what exactly is the Salish Sea? The Salish Sea includes Puget Sound, The Straits of Juan de Fuca, and the Canadian waters north of Puget Sound. Salish is a First Nations/Native American word which describes the people and geography of this region. Approximately 55 tribes comprise the original inhabitants, and they — more than ever — have much to teach the rest of us who live and work in their ancestral homeland and waters.
Salish Sailors is simply an interactive resource for American and Canadian sailors who navigate the waters between Puget Sound and along the Inside Passages to Alaska through the beautiful waters of the Salish Sea.
My husband Darren and I have both sailed extensively in Puget Sound and Canada,, most recently our friends hosted us for a glorious week in the Bahamas…right at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, March 13-20, 2020. My first experience solo sailing was on a small Hobie Cat as a teenager in Northern Minnesota at Camp Castaway, a Young Life Camp. Darren bought his first sailboat — an International 14′ — at 14. He’s engineer who truly can fix anything. I’m the First Mate who has learned to trust her spouse…reluctantly! I can cook a meal while underway, take a shower in two minutes, and am willing to learn just about anything related to sailing. Taking orders does not come naturally, however. This is also part of a long conversation that will be part of this blog 😉
