The thrill of getting an entry submitted quickly and accepted has expired.

The logistics require a shuttle since the event starts in Tacoma and ends in Pt Townsend. There is a once a day bus run, but make sure you tell the driver since there are two connections that you don’t want to miss. Being cheap and retired, the complications of lack of modestly priced places to stay in Pt Townsend make me less inclined to participate. Too much time and effort for too little return on the fun. Each entry decides whether to anchor out or dock at the overnight stops, so a fair bit of coordination to complete the course.

The locals have an advantage when it comes to participating.

There are easier ways to have fun on the water.

The preparations on the boat continue.

Local TSCA and spontaneous events will be enjoyed.
