Salish 100

The largest organized small-boat cruise in North America. Join a hundred or so other small boaters, cruising in a relaxed way from Olympia, WA to Port Townsend, with stops each night. The inaugural Salish 100 was created and run in 2019 by the Port Townsend Pocket Yachters. It was a big hit, and so much fun for everyone involved that it was destined to become an annual event. But it was also a big event for our little club to manage, so the Northwest Maritime Center agreed to add it to their programs, along with the Race to Alaska, and SEVENTY48.

July 17 – Saturday 9am to 5pm
