FULL RACE- Port Townsend to Ketchikan
Team name : Turn Point Design
Team captain: Brandon Davis
Total crew: 2 (Nige Oswald is the 2nd)
Vessel: Turn point 24 (an R2AK original)
We’re just a little bit proud of this one for a couple of reasons. Reason #1: TEAM TURN POINT DESIGN is the first hometown team to enter the R2AK, Brandon is a Port Townsend guy and runs his business (TURN POINT DESIGN) out of here too. TURN POINT DESIGN offers custom kits to the world of boat builders (just today we asked them for a kit that would turn our Grumman canoe into a trimaran), and is a resource for professional designers who want to kit out their boats using state of the art CNC routers, or custom parts that they can fabricate out of a large number of materials. They design stuff, make stuff. TURN POINT DESIGN is a great business and they have a website: www.TURNPOINTDESIGN.com
The second reason we are proud? TURN POINT DESIGN did a clever thing and entered the race with their business name as a team name. Which means even if they never enter the race you now know about TURN POINT DESIGN, and if they actually do the race TURN POINT DESIGN will be all over the live map, and if they win…well that’s advertising that pays for itself and then some. That’s clever, and we like clever here at R2AK…plus their boat looks pretty cool.
