The Notice of Race is hereby AMENDED as follows: The 2020 Race to the Straits is cancelled due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Race to the Straits starts in Shilshole on Saturday morning and ends at Port Townsend on Saturday afternoon. Most boats raft up in Point Hudson with a catered halfway party at the nearby Northwest Maritime Center. On Sunday, the race starts at Port Townsend and finishes at Shilshole. This race sells out every year, with a maximum of 125 boats (subject to change based on room in the marina.) This race features some challenging currents and sometimes challenging winds. It is a great first race for those with cruising experience.
