Fantastic news.  The 21st annual Race to the Straits is happening this year!  After a 2 year hiatus....we are back.  Yes, it will be 2 full days of racing to Port Townsend and back with an awesome halfway party in between.  It's really all happening! 

We have some exciting events taking place this year as well as some necessary changes.  A few tidbits include:

  • MANDATORY SKIPPER MEETING hosted at the VFW on 5/6/22 in Ballard. 
  • Halfway Party at the fabulous Northwest Maritime Center in Port Townsend. 
  • Halfway Party dinner catered by Mystery Bay Seafood w/ included beer and wine. 
  • T-Shirts and other merchandise will be available for purchasing. 
  • Halfway trophies as well as a haul out for the first to cross the finish on Saturday. 
  • Final trophies awarded at the Sloop Tavern in Ballard.

 This year, however, we had to make some changes to the size of the event due to major space constraints at Point Hudson Marina.  Many of you know that the marina will be doing an extensive breakwater re-build on the north side of the entrance starting late summer.  Because of that construction, they had to rearrange the marina to make way for additional commercial traffic as well as the local vendors.  This year we will have less space than we normally would at the Pt Hudson marina, but we do have space allocated outside the Pt Hudson marina as well as at Boat Haven for selected boats within our total reservation.  In true STYC spirit, we had to address these constraints with the goal of still getting butts in boats and providing an amazing race for those that want to join.
