Showdown On The Sound!

  • Northwest Maritime Center 431 Water Street Port Townsend, WA, 98368 United States (map)

The Artful Sailor is sponsoring a fabulous team in the Northwest Maritime Center’s Seventy48, human-powered boat race from Tacoma to Port Townsend, WA.

  • Race starts in Tacoma: 7:00 pm, May 31, 2019

  • Race ends in Port Townsend by: 7:00 pm, June 2, 2019

The Artful Sailor Whole Earth Nautical Supply has entered the redoubtable and irrepressible, Emiliano Marino, rowing TASWENS (pronounced: tahs'-vens) a 15.5’ Bolger Gloucester Gull dory as TEAM ARTFUL SAILOR in a grand Showdown on the Sound: Northwest Maritime Center’s Seventy48, (70 miles - two days) human-powered boat race from Tacoma to Port Townsend, WA., on May 31, 2019.

Marino plans to row down to Tacoma in time to race back: a venerable mossback with a traditional vessel amidst a crowd of mostly youthful fast-pacers pulling, paddling and pedaling contemporary craft. They all take off in the Foss Waterway, by the Museum of Glass and wend their way to Port Townsend for the finish; a Ruckus party on City Dock to conclude the Seventy48 and celebrate the next day’s Race to Alaska.
