Boats Afloat, Devlin Boats: The South Lake Union Boats Afloat Show (September 13-16) was a ton of fun! We caught up with Sam Devlin of Devlin Boats aboard one of his builds, Woody. Boats Afloat, Aspen Power Cats: The one and only Larry Graf, visionary behind Aspen Power Catamarans, had a fleet of new boats to show off at Boats Afloat.


Boats Afloat, Supreme Seattle: Whether you were in search of a new cruiser, browsing the boat scene's hottest new arrivals, or simply out to meet the faces of the industry, the Boats Afloat Show was the place to be. This lovely couple couldn't take their eyes off the Seattle Yachts section. We'd love to hear your favorite part! Office Octopus: We’re happy to announce a new arrival to the office; our octopus! That’s right, we’ve got an intelligent, tentacled sidekick now to help. Why, you may ask? Better question is, why not!? Crow’s Nest, Over the Hill and Going Strong: Crow’s Nest Yachts Inc. officially turned 41 this year and celebrated with a “40 Plus” birthday bash. We at Northwest Yachting salute our friends on the good work, especially now that the company is extra-over the hill. Here we see San Diego-based Michael Gardella, who recently sold an 87’ Mantra sportfisher for around $5 million this summer. Congrats!


California Tugboat Captain, Nationally Awarded Hero: Honorees from around the world gathered September 20 at the annual award ceremony of non-profit Association for Rescue at Sea (AFRAS). Local Captain Nathan Lins (pictured right) of TowBoatUS Catalina received the AFRAS C-Port search and rescue award for saving a sailor who fell overboard. Pictured left is AFRAS president Charles “Skip” Bowen. Good work, cap’n. Have NWY, Will Travel: Seasoned Northwest Yachting contributor Greg Van Belle sent this snapshot from his recent trip to Vietnam. Our contributors are truly everywhere and always in boat mode. Join us! Send your pitches to our managing editor at Wooden Boats Galore: The annual Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival was a great success, September 7-9, with hundreds of wooden boats, rowing and sailing races, seminars, and more. We look forward to next year, better than Christmas! The Last Unicorn: A rare and beautiful sight was witnessed in the mooring field of Port Townsend; a rainbow unicorn. If you see this rare beastie for yourself, please send us photographic evidence. We are tracking her for scientific research.


10. Tallships Duke it Out: The Schooner Regatta is a mainstay at the Port 11.

Townsend Wooden Boat Festival, and participants and bystanders alike were in awe of the massive sails, salty crew, and general majesty of the occasion. R2AK Inspiration: A young woman sailor looks on at the recent Race to Alaska Blazer Party as team Sail Like a Girl skipper Jeanne Goussev, Race Boss Daniel Evans, and Northwest Maritime Center Executive Director Jake Beattie offer a few closing words of inspiration. Applications are now being accepted for 2019; go fast, go north!


12. Crabs! Crabs! Crabs!: If you attend SeaFeast without indulging in the


Crabfeed at the Harbor, did you even go? These happy seafood enthusiasts were wrists deep in a whole (or half) Dungeness crab, coleslaw, corn, potatoes, a bun, and lemonade.

13. Salty Shanties: The Fisher Poets took over Bellingham at three different happening venues. Bob Gudmundson welcomed the first attendees to the Sylvia Center of the Arts Lucas Hicks Theater with some salty tunes, including one about a blind helmsman.

14. Pink Boat Regatta, Tacoma-style: The Pink Boat Regatta charity sailboat racing phenomenon continued with the Tacoma, Washington, iteration of the event on September 15. One hundred percent of all net proceeds are donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. (photo: Jan Anderson/JanPix).

15. Ranger Territory: Here we see the massive Ranger Tugs and Cutwater

Boats Factory Rendezvous at Roche Harbor Resort. There were 218 boats in attendance, all made here in the Pacific Northwest. Seminars, games, prizes, contests, meals, magician, live band, boat show, and more went down. Photos courtesy of Sam Bisset. 102 NORTHWEST YACHTING || OCTOBER 2018
