OUT – Lattuca

FULL RACE- Port Townsend to Ketchikan

Team name: Team Lattuca

Team captain: Josh Lattuca

Total crew: 1

Vessel: 16? dory

Team Lattuca is the first solo entry into the R2AK. Yep, solo, like by himself.

Why would someone jettison companionship and the possibility of relief at the oars for the austerity and increased difficulty of attempting the R2AK alone? We have two ideas on this. Our first guess: Josh is so good that there simply ain’t room for any more talent on that little boat. Second theory: After 5 years of saving lives as a surf rescue boat crewman in the US Coast Guard he considers it professional development to have the chance to be the one on the other end of the rope.  Either way, an engineless attempt of the Inside Passage is hard enough with a crew, but doing it solo is a baller move. Take heed young-uns, Team Lattuca might have just set the standard for badassery: he’s not just the first solo racer he’s also a demolitions expert (no kidding).

The R2AK swagger meter is pegged at 11.
