    Just completed a 5-day, 230-mile round trip from Juneau to Petersburg, AK for the 4th of July. Calm seas, no wind for most of the trip.

    Wild times on the 4th with the "2x6 Stomp", tricycle races, go-cart races, and the "Herring Toss"

    Icebergs, growlers, bergy bits come from Holkham Bay fed by Tracy Arm and Endicott Arm. Dawes Glacier, and North & South Sawyer Glaciers. Ice drifts into Stephens Passage.

    1989 Wilbur 34 Weekender.

    We passed ice in the same area last year on our steam up from Bellingham. The inside passage is a cruisers paradise. You’re fortunate to have such a nice boat in that part of the world.
