This event has been a highlight of the summer racing season in past years.  Let’s continue the tradition with a good turnout this year.


The Port to Port Race is June 25th and 26th.

This race goes from Port Townsend to Port Ludlow and back with an overnight stop in Port Ludlow.  The course goes outside of Marrowstone Island, not through the cut.  Starts are timed to make use of favorable current.

PT Start: 6/25, 2pm
Cutoff:  7pm in Port Ludlow
Port Ludlow start: 10am
Cutoff: 3pm in PT

Skippers need to call ahead and make a moorage reservation.  When you call you will need to tell the Port Ludlow moorage office (360.437.0513) that you are participating in the PTSA Port to Port race.  The fire ring and BBQ area are already reserved for Saturday night.

The Sparkle crew will provide hotdogs, bratwurst, condiments and buns on Saturday.  Please bring a side dish if you can.  Some great additions would be potato salad, pasta salad, green salad, watermelon, baked beans, marshmallows, pie…

On Sunday morning the Sparkle crew will provide coffee, tea and OJ and a  breakfast of fruit, yogurt, granola, homemade muffins, hard boiled eggs…

This was a really fun event last year and we are looking forward to another great P to P race.
