End of Year Party and Awards Thursday 11/15 at 6pm

The annual end-of-the-year awards party and dinner will be held at the Pope Marine Building at 6pm on Thursday 11/15 at 6pm.  As in the past it will be a potluck dinner – please bring a main and a side dish to share.  Beer and wine will be available and there will be a slideshow.  This is always a fun event that provides an opportunity for each crew to relive their victories and decry their losses, to retell the stores of crashes and near misses, and to get excited for the new season starting in the spring of 2019.

The Pope Marine Building is located on the dock at the corner of Water and Madison Streets in Port Townsend (near the Cotton Building where the party was last year).

Drone Video of Nightcap Series Race 2

Nick Reid (in conjunction with Stig Osterberg) captured some great aerial video of last Saturdays race.  There are three clips all of which can be seen below.  Lots can be learned by studying them carefully.  Thanks Nick and Stig!

It helps most if you remember the very light and shifty breeze and see how boats use it to advantage (or not). For a sense of scale (and speed?) the yellow tetrahedrons are less than 1/2 mile apart.

Opening Day this Saturday (5/5)

The Port Townsend Yacht Club is sponsoring a boat parade and blessing of the fleet to celebrate the start of the boating season.  Everyone is invited to participate.  The parade begins around noon at city dock.  You can find all the details at their web site.

And don’t forget that leg one of the Port to Port race is this Saturday as well, starting at 2:30 (not 2:00).  So you could join in the parade then race to Port Ludlow!
