2016 was a good year for racing on Port Townsend Bay! The Port Townsend Sailing Association ran or helped run 28 separate events. There were multiple races run in some of those events for a total of 40 individual races. And if you raced in each one you would have sailed a total of 221 nautical miles. There were 5 distance races, the Thunderbird regionals, the new Ted Pike rum race, three series (spring, summer, and fall), and several regattas. Planning is underway for racing in 2017, which promises to be even better than 2016!
