Jillian Crabtree getting ready for the Oregon Offshore.

You may have seen Lady Eileen, a Baba 30, out on Port Townsend bay earlier this year.  She sailed in the Shipwright’s Regatta, and some of the earlier PTSA races.  She is owned by Jillian and Barret Crabtree. They are currently in Astoria, OR awaiting the start of the 40th annual Oregon Offshore race, which starts on May 12th at the mouth of the Columbia River and ends at the entrance to Victoria Harbor (a distance of 193 miles).  This can be a very challenging stretch of water so I’m sure there will be stories to be told when they return to PT!

Best of luck Jillian and Barret!
