IBC’s Adam and Mike went on a mission with a couple of friends to Washington’s Beacon Rock to enjoy one of our last sunny days here in the NW. Everyone met up in Oregon at Chinook Landing for the 20 mile up river run at 10:00 AM. Friends in attendance included Katie in Adam’s boat and Ty in his own Zodiac Futura MK2C. The morning was cool and overcast with a 5 knot West wind letting the boats settle in for what looked like a perfect day on the water. Fog and haze was cooking off quickly by the time the flotilla made it to Rooster Rock State Park in Oregon. Along the way Adam in his Zodiac MK1 Futura S,Mike in his Bombard Commando C4R, and Ty in his new Zodiac MK2C Futura played games and completed maneuvers in high speed handling and close quarters operations. A good time was had by all!
By the time we made it to Washington’s Beacon Rock State Park it was full speed ahead for the next adventure. We pulled into perfect weather and beautiful vistas in the marina with plenty of dock space for everyone including the Portland Yacht Club on their annual cruise. The group made their way from the marina over the well groomed trail to the rock’s main trail and ascended the 52 switchbacks to the summit. It couldn’t have been a better day.
The trip back down river was bumpy until we got past Oregon’s Rooster Rock State Park and then it was smooth sailing again all the way back to Chinook Landing’s boat ramp. All in all it was a grand adventure worth the price of admission.
