First Friday Scallywag Race
Our summer reoccurring First Friday Scallywag Race is this afternoon. If you are looking for something fun to do today, saunter down to Shipyard Cove about 3 PM to view skippers setting out to the starting line for an afternoon race to Reid Rock and back.
You could find yourself aboard a sleek racing boat handling a spinnaker, jib, or main sheet! Or you may just be helping the boat stay upright!
After the race we will join the kind folks at Jensens Marine (actually Essential Sailing Industries, Jason and Emily) for a BBQ snack and heated discussion about all the details of the race.
Remember, the basic rules include, 'there are no rules', (it is a Scallywag race you know).
You are invited to come and be a part of this decade's long Friday Harbor tradition.
Meet at 3:00 PM at Shipyard Cove. We will be crewing up to race from Shipyard Cove to Reid Rock and back. The gun goes off at 4:00 PM. The historic time to beat is 21:33 minutes:seconds. We plan to enjoy a picnic BBQ after the race about 5:00 PM. Everyone is invited: Skippers with boats (any type of sailboat) and Crew (bring a life jacket and a smile). Meet at Shipyard Cove at 3:00 PM to ready your boat and meet your crew, don’t be bashful, our goal is to get everyone on a boat!
Contact Fleet Captain John Salinas via email or phone 541-660-5783 for skipper and crew details.
Boats will be scored and an overall winner will be recognized.
