Dutch Harbor

Dutch Harbor, Alaska
Dutch Harbor is all a rugged mountainous area. Lots of williwaws (wind coming down off the cliffs, suddenly resulting in high winds that last for several minutes) keep things interesting. As we arrived in Dutch Harbor on strong winds, we needed only one small jib to take us into the harbor. The harbormaster called us on the VHF radio as we entered, and told us where to dock.
