Port Townsend Open Fleet Race


Saturday, October 12:

11 teams from 5 different high schools arrived in Port Townsend to race FJs today at the Northwest Maritime Center.

After a 1-hour period of light, fluky wind, a north-northwest breeze filled in and provided 5-11 knots the rest of the day. This was enough to run 12 windward-leeward races. Though the wind was fairly consistent, there were still some wind shifts, sometimes by as much as 20 or 30 degrees. Those shifts and a steady half-knot current made things challenging for the sailors at times.

Bainbridge 1 dominated the fleet with a total score of 17; out of the 12 races, they had 9 firsts! Bainbridge 2 was second with a score of 45, followed by Port Townsend in third place with a score of 47. Full scores are available on the scores.hssailing.org website.

Thanks to all the volunteers, parents, and sailors, and to the Northwest Maritime Center, for another nice regatta in Port Townsend!
