The 2019 PTSA Racing Calendar is here. Many thanks to Tulip Morrow for putting it together!
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).
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!
Don’t miss the first race of the season. It will be a City Dock start at 6:15pm.
Last week’s kickoff party was a good time with an excellent potluck, some interesting speakers, and about fifty people attending.
In support of Thursdays kick-off party and eager anticipation of the new season, updated SI’s are available under the RACING tab. Print a copy for the review at the party (someone said something about a quiz).
It’s almost time to start racing. But first it’s party time. All the information you need is on the poster below. We are looking forward to seeing everyone and having a fun start to the racing season.
After an hour and a half of bobbing around, last week’s race (9/23/2017) was cancelled due to lack of wind. This Saturday’s wind prediction looks more favorable. So let’s get out there for the actual first race of the fall series. Start is at 1pm.
