Hello Portland (Oregon, not Maine)

Next week we'll be in Portland Oregon to celebrate Baby Salt's Great Grandfather's 88th Birthday. We're also looking forward to getting some well needed R&R and checking out the area, which we hear is amazing (we've never been there before).

While we are there, we would love to check out the local sailing scene, which looks very active. We've done a little research and have seen a number of active sailing clubs incluging the Willamette Sailing Club, Island Sailing Club the Hood River Yacht Club, and of course, the Portland Yacht Club, which turned 100 years old this year.

We'd like to acknowledge the Sail Portland Website and's Oregon club list page which are good resources.

We'd appreciate any suggestions from readers or also hope to hear from other sailing and water blogs, like Proper Course, Frogma, Messing About in Sailboats, and Tugster.
