The sailboat racing season in Port Townsend opens with the Port Townsend Shipwrights’ Regatta in February.
The Northwest Maritime Center & Wooden Boat Foundation, in conjunction with the Port Townsend Sailing Association, present the 24th Annual Shipwright’s Regatta! Boats of all construction are welcome.
As always, the race is open to folks who would like to try sailboat racing but do not have a boat. Non-boat owners are encouraged to show up at the Skippers’ Meeting and be connected with skippers looking for crew. Make sure you have appropriate clothing and safety gear for the often challenging conditions that come with a February race on Port Townsend Bay.
Door Prizes! Perpetual Awards! Chance to win a free haul out for two lucky racers!
Boats of all construction & crew without boats welcome.
