Journey Update, Monday July 19 at 3 pm.

Canoes are preparing for soft landing. Skippers meeting in session.

Due to a death in the tribal community protocol may vary from that which is posted, but will proceed as much as possible according to plans.

Will post updates as they come in.

[Thanks to Elaine, Phil, Nano and others for update info!]

Update

Tribal Journey to Makah 2010 Update.

Canoes trailered to Pillar Point, Clallam Bay and some to Snow Creek and will paddle to Neah Bay from those points, for a soft landing around 2 pm. Official landing ceremonies after that… maybe around 5 pm.  

Vehicle traffic is very limited in Neah Bay, so be aware of this. There will be thousands of visiters who will be there for the events.

Delay

Canoes delayed on take-off from Elwha / Port Angeles (Hollywood Beach).

Rough and dangerous waters deterred departure from Hollywood Beach, Port Angeles, WA from their Elwha stopover. (Some canoes may have gone on the water against advisories, but most either turned back, or did not leave the beach.)

Canoes will most likely trailer tomorrow, to Piller Point, their next designated stop.

More updates as they come in.

(Info per Lower Elwha Skipper, Phil Charles, Jr. at 7am.)
