It was a three hour tour. This race lived up to it's billing. Maritime Fest always seems like a cluster and if you have a good sense of adventure and a good sense of humor this race should not be missed. The vendors add a special culinary touch and the displays this year hit a new high in small boat eclectic.
The race itself was belief it or not, not a drifter. Boats speeds on the last leg were reported as high as 5 knots! The only disappointment was the lack of the sailing vessel Dixieland. I was so sure that Bubba the Captain of the Dixieland would be in attendance...maybe next year.
Results and three hour tour standings attached. Next race in the three hour tour series is September 7th the awards race. Starts off the Tyee Marina and ends at the Rock The Dock. Please join us for a sail and the handing out of the yearly awards.
