Pocket Yachters

Believe me friends, there is nothing half so much worth doing as simply


- Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows

Members of the Port Townsend Pocket Yachters club really do enjoy messing about in  small boats - primarily traditional sailing, rowing and paddling designs that are trailerable, affordable, functional and just plain fun. 


We’re a loose-knit group with no bylaws, 'commodores' or membership dues - just folks who love getting out on the water in small boats.


We’re centered in Jefferson County Washington, the proud home of a rich maritime heritage as well as the Northwest Maritime Center, Wooden Boat Foundation, Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival & Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding.

Our two biggest events each year are the Pocket Yacht Palooza/Crooza and the Salish 100 small boat cruise.

For more information on the 2020 Salish 100, that will feature 100+ small boats cruising 100 nautical miles from Olympia to Port Townsend (July 10-17), go to the Salish 100 Facebook page, and join the group.

To join the Port Townsend Pocket Yachters and to stay in touch with other members and about upcoming events, you can register for the free Port Townsend Pocket Yachters Groups.io page

You can also follow our Facebook page (which is different than the Salish 100 page).

If you have any questions, please contact Marty Loken at norseboater22@gmail.com
