Welcome to the 42nd

Wooden Boat Festival

Barb Trailer Festival Director

Heart is the energy and emotion that brings us here: it’s the drive that assembles countless tiny pieces into the Festival. This year, heart shows up with more big boats than we honestly thought could fit in the harbor, an incredibly diverse range of presentations from Polynesian boatbuilding to wayfinding, and exciting presentations like Women’s Offshore panel and the Yacht Designer panel.

As always, I am humbled by the quantity of creativity, laughter and sweat it takes to bring our Wooden Boat Festival to fruition. What goes on behind the scenes all year long sets the stage for the gorgeous spectacle that you see. Boaters pour their hearts into their vessels; presenters polish their talks; and the harbormaster choreographs marina layouts trying to fit in more and more boats. The Staff does everything from creating websites to building fences. Captains strategize to make all 50 functional areas of Festival come together seamlessly. Suddenly, it’s September: the entire Festival is assembled and becomes operational in just 32 hours. The amount of heart that goes into this weekend is extraordinary: heart makes the festival so special. Sometimes I wonder “If we add more polish and finesse, would we lose some of that heart?” There is something beautiful about the ice guy driving around delivering ice to the popup bars and food vendors that a simple (and expensive) refrigerated truck would alter. Even the ice guy is a metaphor for the heart of wooden boat tradition: It’s not the easiest way to accomplish the task, but easy isn’t always better. Wave to the ice guy when you see him on his rounds: it’s heart and tradition, after all.


Stop reading this! Despite the title, whatever I have to say is actually pretty boring in comparison. Don’t get me wrong – even as an employee, I’m Wooden Boat Festival Fanboy #1; have been since I rowed a boat in from Anacortes as a wide-eyed twenty-four-year-old. I rounded the breakwater, shipped the oars, and was hit by the wave of euphoric, nautical celebration that engulfed me. I haven’t been able to shake it since. But really, stop reading this! Put this down and get to Point Hudson and get engulfed in it yourself! The point of the Wooden Boat Festival isn’t what I have to say about it. It’s about the experience you will have when you come: the boats, the craftsmanship, the community, the celebration. It’s the friends you bump into after years, or the ones you make after minutes, or beers, or the last lap around the buoys. This festival brings out the kind of passion that finds its way into the form and design of boats, as well as as the passion of the people that make and maintain them – their skills and dedication, the humble greatness that comes from a lifelong, wide-eyed pursuit of the kind of craftsmanship that is becoming rarer by the day…except for here, except for this weekend. This weekend the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival is your 42nd chance to connect with the craft and community that keeps our region’s wooden boat legacy afloat (and they can dance pretty good too.) Our Wooden Boat Festival has a space for you; revel hard, learn lots, bask in the craftsmanship, and allow space for the beginning of your own wide-eyed story. Happy festival! Stop reading!

19th Annual North Star Stage Artist Row

One of the highlights of the Festival for years, this witty and charming play is directed by Port Townsend’s own Joey Pipia. Each year he and his playwright team, including daughter Sophie, conjure up the new adventures of Captain Cloud. The play never fails to entertain and amuse young and old – it’s a “don’t miss” for any age! Check the schedule for times.

Captain Pirate’s Treasure Hunt Cupola House

At high noon on Sunday, young pirates from near and far make their way to the Jolly Roger flag at the Cupola House. Anyone dressed like a pirate can join the hunt, scouring the grounds and beaches for the “X” that marks the spot of buried treasure. Sunday from noon–1 PM.

48° North joins the Northwest Maritime Center! We know, we know – we should have sent invitations to a big wedding and invited all of our friends, but as it happened, the Northwest Maritime Center and 48° North, the Northwest’s sailing magazine of record for 30-plus years, effectively eloped over the summer – and all of us at the altar are pretty moony-eyed about the whole thing. The Northwest Maritime Center exists to advance our region’s maritime culture, and after years of engaging with us as advertisers, covering our programs, and being inspired by and sponsoring the Race to Alaska, the owners of the magazine were looking to retire. Rather than continue to look for a buyer to carry the torch, Richard Hazelton and Michael Collins grew keen on the idea of the NWMC becoming the steward of their legacy. After a series of conversations that spanned months, and pints, and emails, 48° North now and forever exists as part of our family of efforts to engage the ever-growing number of people looking to the water as their source of inspiration and adventure. What does this mean for 48° North? The magazine has a solid future and the backbone of the NWMC to help it imagine its next 30 years of reporting and supporting our region’s sailing culture. What does this mean for the NWMC? We couldn’t be more humbled and inspired to take on the work of 48º North as part of our mission, and to build on the three decades of excellence we’re inheriting to advance the sailing scene of the PNW. Pinch us; we must be dreaming. Actually, don’t pinch us.

Wooden Boat Festival 2018 Artist Jesse Joshua Watson The Wooden Boat Festival is a rich, historic annual event with many different facets. For this year’s poster image I wanted to emphasize a personal favorite, the Bar Harbor Mainstage. As someone who has been lucky enough to play music on that stage a number of times, I hoped to capture the exuberance of the musical part of the festival. Point Hudson is a working marina. It’s a diverse collection of boat makers, maritime businesses, and tourists. Sails are made here,with hands and sweat and years of experience. Teak and oak are transformed here, by wood whisperers, into vessels that navigate the globe. Strolling visitors from far and near are enlightened and awed by the heritage and bustling industry of the harbor. Saturday evening at the festival is the time we all come together. The orange glow of the dancing crowd in the festival lights contrasts with the ultramarine blues of a late summer evening in Port Townsend. That crowd is truly something special; folks of diverse ages and backgrounds come together to dance in the warmth of each other and in celebration of our heritage on the water. Jesse Joshua Watson lives with his wife and sons in Port Townsend. His art has been featured in magazines, books, and record covers and has been displayed in galleries and museums up and down the West Coast as well as in NYC, where Jesse won several awards from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. In addition to writing and illustrating books, exhibiting fine art, and teaching art to kids, Jesse plays soccer religiously, music frequently, and surfs the chilly waters of the PNW as often as he can, which, as you probably guessed...is not nearly enough.


Volunteer of the Year:


This is Michael’s 10th year of volunteering for WBF. He started by handing out packets to boaters on the dock, worked on the dock safety crew for 6 years, and now He’s one of the main volunteer managers helping with the massive setup and teardown process. Each year Michael puts in over 100 hours of his time during the week of Festival. He not only contributes his time: his Sequim based handyman service company donates bee traps, and has also upgraded much of our Bar Harbor lighting to LED, making it more efficient and easier to install. Michael’s generosity is overshadowed only by his dedication. While he loves volunteering and helping his community, nothing makes Michael Rosser happier than his daughter Ashley, Port Townsend’s 2018 Rhody Festival Queen.

Lifetime Achievement Awards ★★★



Marty Loken says he’s best known as “an out-of-control collector of project boats.” Marty dedicates his life to getting people and boats out on the water and he’s mastered this feat countless times over his 75 years. Over 200 boats owe their restored and renewed lives to his craftsmanship and vision: he’s built dozens more boats from scratch. At his shop in Nordland, WA, he makes sure that worthy older wooden boats stay on the water. Marty and his wife Marijiann (Mo) Moss say the place is known as “the boat farm”… a sort of halfway house for good old boats that need to be saved. In just the last year Marty built a 16-foot Oxford Wherry and restored four classic boats while serving as Associate Editor of Small Craft Advisor magazine and Editor of Duckworks Magazine: this is what he calls “semi-retirement.” Marty’s love of water and boats began almost before he can remember. It’s been said he must have been “born in a boat.” His first rocking horse was actually a boat with handles. Marty grew up in the Scandinavian neighborhood of Ballard, WA, surrounded by fishermen, boats, and water. His father and grandfather designed and built boats; Marty built his first boat at age ten, and another one a few months later. In high school he developed an interest in writing and was soon launched on a ten-year general reporter job with The Seattle Times. Family connections led him to Alaska where he spent almost a decade editing regional magazines, writing books, and honing photography skills. Marty’s love of photography (still a passion) led him to create a image management business, which he tranplanted to Seattle in 1980. This successful venture was sold to Getty Images of London in 1994 and Marty “retired” from Getty in 1997. Boats became a livelihood in 1997, when Marty took his wooden boat building and restoration skills to work after purchasing Seattle’s Wooden Boat Shop retail store and launching The Restoration Shop, specializing in full restoration of customers’ vintage boats. Two years later the business moved to Whidbey Island. Marty met Mo at the Whidbey Island Writers Conference shortly thereafter: four years later they together moved boats, shop and all to Marrowstone Island. Retirement began anew for Marty in December, 2013, when he shifted to restoration of his own boats, rather than those of customers. He now had time to turn back to writing, photography and public service as well, to the great benefit of the maritime and local community. Marty organized the annual Pocket Yacht Palooza in Port Townsend, the largest gathering of small boats on the West Coast. He had served on the board of The Center for Wooden Boats (and is a lifetime member), now volunteers for the Wooden Boat Festival, and has served in numerous leadership roles for classic boat and professional publications and organizations. Marty has loved to row and take on boating adventures since childhood and most recently was an inaugural SEVENTY48 racer aboard a Colin Angus Oxford Wherry as TEAM GEEZER. Keep an eye out at the Wooden Boat Festival for FOTO, the 1953-designed raised deck outboard cruiser Marty recently restored, Marty and Mo enjoy FOTO’s role as the official Photo Boat of Small Craft Advisor magazine, based in Port Townsend. Restored to glory and active use, as all good old boats deserve, Marty’s boats are a legacy of lifetime achievement.

“You have made my boyhood dream come true,” says Bob Perry. Grateful to his teachers, for opportunities, and for the sailors who cherish his work, Bob designs yachts that are grateful for water and wind. Robert H. Perry was born in Ohio and spent his childhood in his mother’s native Australia. At age twelve, he joined his parents on a month long voyage by Liberty ship back to the States. That experience aboard shaped Bob’s future career and plunged his imagination into ships and the sea. By eighth grade, in Seattle, Bob was immersed in the study and practice of sailing. He decided to become a yacht designer while still in high school. An introduction and lunch with Bill Garden, when Bob was just fifteen, set the course. Bob attended Seattle University and moved directly into design work shortly thereafter. Through his 20s Bob worked under a number of master designers in Seattle and Boston, finally opening his own office on Shilshole Bay in Seattle in the early 1970s. The Valiant 40 began production in Bellingham in 1973; the yacht was a runaway success and an instant classic−eventually over 200 were built. Owners were (and still are) thrilled with a versatile ocean cruiser that quickly proved fast, comfortable, safe, and capable of both circumnavigation and performance racing. Bob’s third client wanted to build CT54 boats in Taiwan, so beginning in the late 1970s Bob began a cooperative design/build relationship with the Taiwanese maritime industry. This partnership lasted for over two decades and produced hundreds of his yachts. The Valiant 40 was quickly followed by the Islander 38, Tayana 37, and Baba 30; design after design−many hundreds, eventually−flowed from Bob’s desk and changed the face of sailing in the Pacific Northwest and around the globe. Today it’s said that there are more of Bob Perry’s designs cruising the world than those of any other designer. Bob is certainly not retired. He’s still designing new boats of all kinds, and provides fee-based consultations for serious boat shoppers. One recent innovative racer was built at the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding in Port Hadlock: the Perry Sliver Class Daysailer 62´ Francis Lee, launched in 2014, proved a head-turner and dominant racer. Bob enjoys crewing this successful new design; scratch that−Bob likes to drive her any time he’s aboard, which is often, thanks to a twenty year friendship with her owner. Bob and his wife live in a beach cottage on the North Sound and he enjoys time on the water in his Boston Whaler. He’s still in favor of sailing well to weather and grateful that his career has brought him so much pleasure. He designs in order to put water and wind to their best use: “It’s not magic. Just physics.” This year’s Wooden Boat Festival judging team acknowledges Bob Perry’s lifetime achievement with gratitude for keeping so many of us fast, comfortable, and safe.

Visiting Wooden Boat Festivals Around the World (aka Finding Our BFF Down Under) Imagine taking our beloved Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival, doubling the number of boats, stretching it to a mile of waterfront, giving all the people Aussie accents, and turning it upside down – in February. In that image, you’ll find yourself in Hobart, Tasmania, in their still summery autumn at the Australian Wooden Boat Festival – the largest “purely” wooden boat gathering in the world.

Documentary about trans-Atlantic solo sail 21 years in making Northwest premiere at Wooden Boat Festival

A year after Robert Manry sailed solo across the Atlantic in 1965, in a 13-and-a-half-foot boat, he would write about his adventure in a book named for his vessel, “Tinkerbelle.”

“There is no dream so big that you can’t fit it inside of a tiny boat.” •

Steve Wystrach was so inspired by this book, and by Manry’s example, he not only undertook a solo sailing voyage of his own in 1997, from Los Angeles to Hawaii, but he wound up spending the next 21 years assembling a documentary about Manry’s voyage.

Steve Wystrach Documentary maker “Manry at Sea”

“As I was outfitting my boat in 1997, I was rereading my favorite books about small boat voyages, one of which was ‘Tinkerbelle,’” Wystrach said. “At the end of that book was an extensive information section for other sailors, including a complete list of equipment Manry had on his voyage.” One line item in that appendix was a 16-millimeter movie camera, and since Wystrach had extensive career experience as a film editor and film archivist, he could not help but wonder what had happened to Manry’s film. Manry himself had died in 1971, and it took years for Wystrach to succeed in making contact with Manry’s family. “I finally tracked down his brother, and he had the film, just sitting in a cardboard box in his house,” Wystrach said. “The brother told me, ‘I was just going to throw this box out next spring, so if you’d like it, you can have it.” Wystrach paid for Manry’s brother to ship the film, and through him, made contact with Manry’s sister, who “fortunately for me, turned out to be a bit of a packrat.” Wystrach’s further contacts with Manry’s family yielded home movies, film slides, news footage from

ry’s voyage is not just to hold onto one’s childhood dreams, but also to take concrete steps to make those dreams real.

newspapers were chasing any clue to track him down.”

WEWS-TV in Manry’s hometown of Cleveland, and even a roll of home-movie footage from the cook onboard a freighter stopping and overlooking Manly as he sailed in Tinkerbelle. Along the way, whenever he had the time and the funds to do so, Wystrach conducted interviews with not only Manry’s relatives, but also his colleagues at the Cleveland Plain Dealer, where Manly worked, as well as employees of WEWS-TV. “It ebbed and flowed, when I was able to hire crews and shoot the interviews,” Wystrach said. Wystrach pointed out his documentary, “Manry at Sea,” covered more than just the “adventure” of his voyage, but also followed the race going on in the news media at the time.


Robert Manry

Wystrach explained Manry’s coworkers at the Cleveland Plain Dealer saw an opportunity to sell more papers by following their employee’s progress across the Atlantic Ocean, but the Plain Dealer’s competition sought to scoop them by pinpointing his latest whereabouts on their own. “So here he is, out at sea and having the time of his life,” Wystrach said. “And, meanwhile, these competing

Wystrach has been gratified by the positive response his documentary has received, starting with its inaugural screening in Manry’s native Cleveland, during the Cleveland International Film Festival this spring, followed by stops at film festivals in Madrid and Palm Springs, and invitations to film festivals in Buffalo and Warsaw. “The Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend will be this film’s Northwest premiere,” Wystrach said, who noted it would air in Bali that same month. “I’m very happy that audiences seem to have been engaged and entertained, and that they’ve regarded it as more than just an adventure.” For Wystrach, the lesson of Man-

“He still had a job and a family and a home in the suburbs, with a mortgage, but he methodically moved ahead,” Wystrach said. “As I was putting together this film over the years, there were times I fell into doldrums, but I thought, ‘Hell, if he could sail across the Atlantic, I can do this.’” Wystrach is especially gratified by the number of viewers who seem to have taken that message to heart. “After some of the screenings, I’ve had people come up to me and say that Manry’s voyage made them realize they needed to pay more attention to what they really wanted to do because they had to do what was inside of them,” Wystrach said. “There is no dream so big that you can’t fit it inside of a tiny boat.” After “Manry at Sea” airs at the Wooden Boat Festival Sept. 8, Wystrach plans to answer questions from the audience, and will have DVDs and Blu-rays available for purchase.

Northwest Passage: The Next Thing The most valuable lesson I learned during my 2017 R2AK is how deeply important it is to challenge myself outdoors. That is where I belong. It feels like home. I am ready to go further. Each step we take in life is training for the one after. The Next Thing. Next year, 2019, I plan to paddle the Northwest Passage. My goal is to paddle from Tuktoyaktuk to Pond Inlet on Baffin Island. I will paddle a custom-built carbon fiber expedition/ race SUP built by Joe Bark. I will travel very light, as quickly as possible, with a minimal safety net. There is no point heading out the door to see what you are capable of…while weighing yourself down with a crushing burden of unnecessary gear. My entries in 2017 and 2018 R2AK gifted me the opportunity to test skills I’ve been honing

since before I have memory. I was small when I was sent along down this path. I learned a lot about endurance, and I developed a strong sense of my own horizons during R2AK. I was excited/relieved/proud that my stripped down approach to the race worked as well as it did. Yet, I was left feeling like I wanted more; that I have further to go, more to learn. My chief strategy for dealing with physical/emotional/psychological/ spiritual crises involved extremely disciplined focus on my breath, my stroke, and the countless


details of my environment…raindrops and the patterns they made, localized breezes and what was causing them, the shapes in the clouds, the Ravens, the Whales, Fish, Seals, Otters, Bears, and Trees. I would blur my vision and allow the water shapes/ovoids to work their magic, all while also focusing on my breath. The miles simply melted away. I felt a deep sense of joy and satisfaction in the overpowering sense that I was safely enveloped by the whole of time and the paddlers who came before me. I slipped easily between worlds. That trip changed my life in fundamental ways. I came home, and found that home wasn’t where I’d left it. My ‘real life’ had become like an old pair of shoes that had become too small to wear any longer, even painful. I have a dear friend, Mary Henrikson. She is an artist. Her work brings tears to my

eyes. Mary has an eye for the ephemeral and fleeting moments by which we measure the worth of our lives. I met Mary the night I finished the 2017 R2AK. I knew instantly, the moment she walked in, we would be friends. I signed the first autograph of my life for her, and she later returned the favor by signing her latest book for me. We talked about the paper-thin veils between worlds. She handed me one of her cards. It bore a miniature version of one of her paintings. Depicted were the sky, the land, and the sea. The three blurred together like a melting ice cream cone. I understood instantly that she knew the depth of what I had just experienced. I am seeking the answer to one very simple question. How

much can I do…with how little? I adore the simplicity, speed, purity of movement, and the raw physicality of long-distance SUP. There is nothing more satisfying than moving with great speed and precision, with a light load. Perhaps, I’ll finally get the answer to my question. Perhaps not. I aim to find out. My whole life I have nursed a strong attraction to the Northwest Passage. My assumption was that I would sail through it one day. Toward the end of my R2AK I realized – in a moment of painfully blinding clarity – that I must paddle it. I must. It brought tears to these eyes, like Mary’s art does. “What will Mary hand me this time?” I wonder. \ By Karl Kruger

Lata Returned: Living Polynesian Boatbuilding Traditions come to Festival

Kids’ Boatbuilding in Kids’ Cove

Kids of all ages can design, build, rig, and sail away with their own small wooden boat. Special treat this year, Polynesian style boat building!

Sustaining & Sustainable Sailing The last remaining Te Puke, a Polynesian wooden voyaging vessel, was lost in 1963. Colonizers and missionaries forbade the practice of traditional seafaring arts for generations. The outer Solomon Islands, isolated by geography, and rich only in customs and oral history, were in dire peril of losing the knowledge and know-how of their aging elders. But “Lata,” the voyaging ancestor who built the first Te Puke, inspired one islander to prevent the impending loss of identity vital to the happiness and health of his culture. Taumako, the largest of the Duff Islands, in the far northeast of the far-flung Santa Cruz Group in the southeast Solomon Islands, was the birthplace of Lata. Peoples all over our Pacific Ocean hold beliefs of similar voyaging ancestors, many with similar names. Taumako’s undeveloped terrain still grows the quality natural resources necessary to built powerful and reliable oceangoing wooden boats. Some 40 years after their last craft broke up, the people of Taumako, along with anthropologist/voyager Marianne “Mimi” George and a host of supporters revived their traditional skills to launch a newly crafted Te Puke named Vaka Taumako, in August of 1998. Now, almost exactly 20 years later, the Polynesian boatbuilding renaissance comes to the Wooden Boat Festival. We are extremely honored to welcome Dr. Mimi George to the festival; she will introduce us to Lata and the heart of these seafaring peoples. On Friday at 2:30pm 20 ‹ 42nd WOODEN BOAT FESTIVAL

and Sunday at 10:45, she brings to the Adventure Stage the film We, the Voyagers: A Film by Polynesians Practicing Ancient Arts. Mimi and others have established a foundation to perpetuate the revival of Polynesian voyaging and seamanship. Know any other culture hereabouts that’s engaged in similar passions? Perhaps you already have voyaging in your heart: come and

learn just what it takes to find and revitalize the knowledge of a boatbuilding and seagoing culture on the other side of our shared ocean.


The Polynesian translation of the universal equation of sailing comes to life in this year’s presentation by veteran world cruisers Philip DiNuovo and Leslie Linkkila. The seldom-visited Ninigo Islands are a group of 31 tiny islands set in 7 atolls that are part of the Manus Province of Papua New Guinea. The Ninigo group features healthy lagoons that make for stunning anchorages set alongside pretty villages. The Seimat people who live there are warm, wonderful people with a still-flourishing sailing canoe culture that allows them to sustainably live on little except pluck, hard work, and love. This is the story of the people, their amazing canted rectangular-boom lugsail single-outrigger sailing canoes, and the culturally rich and highly competitive event dubbed The Great Ninigo Islands Canoe Race. Philip and Leslie will share stories of their cruising adventures and tell us how they undertook direct support for the sailing communities of the Ninigo Islands.


Most of us realize that the Solomon Islands share Polynesian ancestry and boatbuilding culture with a vast net-

work of ocean/island communities. Lata is part of Hawaiian sailing, too; he/she is “Laka.” Like the Solomon Islanders, Hawaiian peoples were stripped of their seafaring practices by colonizers, with near-catastrophic consequences to the health of the hearts of their communities. In the words of the Polynesian Voyaging Society, Hōkūle’a, the now famed Hawaiian voyaging canoe, “began as a dream of reviving the legacy of exploration, courage, and ingenuity that brought the first Polynesians to the archipelago of Hawaii.” ‘Cultural extinction felt dangerously close to many Hawaiians when artist Herb Kane dreamed of rebuilding a double-hulled sailing canoe similar to the ones that his ancestors sailed.” 600 years had passed since the last of these canoes had been seen. Since she was first built and launched in the 1970s, Hōkūle’a has proved more than a voyaging canoe – she “represents the common desire shared by the people of Hawaii, the Pacific, and the World to protect our most cherished values and places from disappearing.” Long a supporter and leader in the Port Townsend boatbuilding community, our friend Captain Steven Soltysik returns to lead us to the story of Hokule`a: A 3-year Voyage Around the World on Saturday afternoon’s Adventure Stage. \

Sail Like a Girl Seven women, one Melges 32 sailboat, 750 miles to Alaska. Oceans that turn into rivers, skies that turn into storms; when the wind dies, we pedal and row, fighting for each mile to Ketchikan. The Race to Alaska (R2AK) is an unsupported adventure race between wind- and human-powered craft embracing the spirit of small boats and true adventure all the way up the Inside Passage. Our team, Sail Like a Girl, raced a 14-year-old Melges 32 – a Ferrari of sorts: we spent hundreds of hours modifying her to go off-roading. She proved to be a tough girl with the same grit and determination the women on this crew possessed. On the trek to Ketchikan we experienced wild swings of wind and weather, demonstrating the multiple personalities of Mother Nature at her finest. For the first few days after leaving Victoria, light wind in scorching 84 degree heat demanded hours upon hours of human propulsion on our two propeller powered bikes rigged to the back of the boat. When all

was said and done, we estimate the team biked 75+ hours during our 6 day, 13 hour and 17 minute journey north to Ketchikan. Johnstone Strait brought the first big wind; within moments we went from biking in two knots of breeze in hopes of reaching a nearby wind line, to realizing we needed to quickly get back into the boat because what appeared to be a small gust was about to slam us with 35-40 knots of wind. We reefed. We double-reefed. We dropped and lashed the mainsail to the boom. With the storm jib alone, we pushed on, surfing at 7 knots of speed.


On day 5 we encountered Lucifer the Log: this thing measured over 20 feet long and 20 inches wide. We met on a moonless night while flying our Code Zero in 6 knots of light air. The collision stopped us in our tracks! In that dark, remote time and place we felt anchors in our stomachs and fear in our hearts. Not knowing the extent of the damage, we dropped our headsail, and limped along until morning could give us a clearer picture. After confirming the boat wasn’t taking on water and that our steering was unaffected, we hoisted sails and went offshore to take the shortest distance to the finish. The waves were short and steep out there, and we were taking quite a beating. Sleeping in the bow, I could feel in my bones the crash each wave delivered – as if the boat was an extension of my own body. Without knowing whether or not our hull or keel was damaged from the log strike, I had to make the call to tack in and take the waves on our port side rather than our bow. This meant

adding 30 miles to our race. With no cell service for tracking, we were certain the previous night’s run-in had cost us the lead. We pushed the boat gently at first, and then more and more as we felt her push herself. 24 hours later as we approached Prince Rupert, Anna received a text from her son. “Mom, you are in the lead!” Surely this was an old message just now coming through. Wait, check Race Tracker! Once the page loaded, it confirmed we were indeed still in first place. Anna, Aimee and I celebrated, waking the other four to let them know the news. With shock and a new vigor, we hopped on the bikes that night and happily pushed on – all the way to Ketchikan and to a first-place win! My reflections: The teamwork we experienced is unmatched by any other in my adult life. Supporting each other and the boat were our top priorities all the way north. Our

pre-race agreement of “Safety First, Speed Second” was put to the test and we were able to follow through. Finding people who share the hunger and drive this team demonstrated, paired with a ‘never quit’ attitude is humbling and wonderful. Seeing the inner warrior in myself is surprising, and seeing it in the women around me is beautiful. Achieving something this difficult is more fulfilling than anything I could achieve day to day. My personal growth in sailing, leading as a skipper, working with a team, and facing fear has been tremendous. Find a challenge for yourself. With all of your being, throw yourself in, plan, over-plan, check your plan, find the right people to share it with, and tackle it voraciously. To all of our family, friends and community that supported us: we are grateful to you from the bottoms of our hearts. \ By Jeanne Assael Goussev, Skipper, Team Sail Like A Girl

Building and Racing My Ultimate Rowboat

With 68 miles down and two to go, the final dose of Aleve kicked in and the screaming from within my legs mellowed to a mournful groan. The water between Port Townsend Canal and the eponymous town was glassy, reflecting the sharp morning sun and leaving no excuse to do anything other than put the oars in and pull. After roughly 12,000 strokes, I pulled up to the public dock in the 20-foot wooden rowboat I had finished building just two weeks prior. I rung the bell and snagged my #11 from the red deli-line counter, finishing the inaugural Seventy48 race in 14 hours and 9 minutes. Quick backstory: Years of dreaming about building a wooden boat and rowing the Inside Passage with my brother had turned into Team Bunny Whaler - R2AK 2016, when we took an open 17-foot Boston Whaler sailing dinghy all the way to Ketchikan. That incredible adventure changed me personally, but also led to a new career and opened doors to a world of boating opportunities and connections beyond belief. After two years of being asked, “Will you do R2AK again?” the announcement of Seventy48 felt

like a gift addressed directly to me. A 70-mile, human-powered race through my home waters sounded like a great way to reawaken the vestiges of my once-high-level rowing engine, and would surely require less planning and time away from home… or so I thought. In what I can only describe as a lightning-strike confluence of good fortune, a multi-faceted plan flashed in my head to bring together several amazing boating entities: • Build a sliding-seat version of Clint Chase’s Drake Raceboat (I’d


rowed and filmed the first 18-foot version at PTWBF 2017). • Build it at the Center for Wooden boats (my favorite place in Seattle). • Race it in Seventy48. • Film the whole shebang for Off Center Harbor videos. Any hangups or a “no” from anyone and the project could not have happened; certainly not on the schedule that it did. Astonishingly, everyone shared my excitement and said, “We’ll make it work!” I began building in earnest in February. The next three months were a blur of excitement, frustration, and education. I relished the opportunity to improve my dormant woodworking skills, but learning on the fly meant doing many steps twice or more. Luckily, the detailed, computer-designed kit from PT’s Turn Point Design meant that it all fit together despite my mistakes. As May approached and the race loomed, it became clear that a few hours a day in the shop would not suffice, and the last

several weeks of the build required 8-12 hours a day working on the boat. Just over two weeks before the race, I bolted the late-addition carbon fiber riggers onto the freshly epoxied hull and realized she was ready to launch. With family, champagne, and smiles, Codojual hit the water, named in honor of Betty Lowman Carey’s Bijaboji and for my family – Cooper, Don, Julia, and Alex. Amazingly, the boat and rig were so close to right that after just a few sea trials and adjustments she was completely dialed in. She has the feel of a big-boy racing shell: sensitive and fast, but with the ability to carry over a hundred pounds of gear! After a week of rowing around Lakes Union and Washington, my training culminated with another long-time goal – a row around Bainbridge, the island where I grew up. With my brother following in a dinghy, I covered the 28 miles in 5 ½ hours, supporting my suspicion that Codojual and I were going to have a blast in Seventy48.

And what an incredible time! Like R2AK, the race was both harder and more fun than I expected. The scene of hundreds of small craft on Puget Sound with a Mt. Rainier backdrop was stunning. I went out faster than planned, racing a game rower in an open water shell up Colvos Passage before settling into a lumpy and windy night with the goal of just making forward progress without worrying about speed. The 5 dark hours were a moonless meditation, chasing after and running from bobbing navigation lights. Feeling the sun pierce over Whidbey Island, exhausted but so grateful to be rowing my boat, was exactly what I’d been looking for. Completing the many parts of this project and sharing exhaustion, amazement, and respect with the other Seventy48 racers was a dizzying, humbling elation. It’s something I don’t expect to experience often, but will be searching for until I do. In the meantime, I’ll be out rowing the boat I built. \ By Nate Rooks
