San Juan Islands, Washington state. Notorious for the currents, fog, and big ship traffic. Tide and current tables a must. At least the sailboat had the luck to be able to turn around without landing on a rock.

I really, really do not like passes like that.

Hell Gate in the East River, New York City is a bit like that. A bit scary because of the eddies and whirlpools. One must pay attention. People refer to it as Hell's Gate, but it's from the days when NYC was Nieuw Amsterdam, and helle meant "bright." Lots of dutch names in the area.
In 1986 we went cruising for a few years. After 20 years and 50+ countries and several oceans, we are STILL "cruising for a few years".

Lucky he didn't wrap the prop with the painter. Completely out of control going down current. Probably could've made some headway by closing in on the shore. Not smart to get into that situation..............i2f
