Registration Open!

Hey all!

The race is in a couple weeks! On Friday the 21st, at 6PM we’ll have a little potluck/ grilling situation downtown at Pope Marine Park so we can hang out and get to know each other, and go over the rules of the race. Location may change due to weather, and to coordinate logistics a little more organized like…

I made a registration form online! On it can register your boat, or sign up to try to find a spot on another boat. I’ll share your information with other registrants if you are looking for crew/ looking for a boat, and use you’re contact information for letting you know of any changes.

You can find the registration here!

Thanks and hope to see ya soon!

Anarchist Regatta! Race to Nowhere!

Hey folks!

We’re hosting an informal sail race the weekend of September 21st in Port Townsend, come join us! We’re looking to get together and tell jokes, share some skills, show each other our boats, and have a little friendly competition.


The race will test who can make the best time, anchor to anchor, sailing around Marrowstone Island, leaving anytime that weekend and finishing before Sunday evening. The course is 20 miles and is strongly influenced by the tide (so bring extra snacks).

We’ll be around all weekend with the distro, and there will be a couple organized hang-outs and meetups through the weekend. Forget about another coat of varnish and come race that sinking pile of sticks! Let’s hang out!
