• 2017 Race To Alaska

    66 Vessels of various lengths, crew size and mode of propulsion have begun leg one of the 2017 Race To Alaska.
    The short portion, from Port Townsend, Washington across the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Victoria is a bit of a weeding out leg,
    with numerous boats not making the entire trip. Today's 0500 start was delayed shortly and began with little to no wind.
    The pack leaders at this point are rowing vessels, Oarcle, Take Me To THe Volcano and Angus Rowboats are making slow but steady progress in the 5-6 knot range.
    Forecast is expected to pick up dramatically as day progresses with wind speed out of west in the mid to high 20's and possible busts to 38 knots!
