Help us keep Port Townsend’s adventure sailing race thriving! Last year’s inaugural race was a crazy success, and 2017 is going to be even better. More teams, more events, more shenanigans.

The Northwest Maritime Center deftly handles our minion recruitment, so if you’re interested in being part of Race to Alaska, please click the button below to take the first step towards becoming an official Race to Alaska Minion! There’s a simple volunteer application you’ll need to fill out. After which you can select jobs and shifts that float your particular boat.


Important Information

Volunteers are required to attend our volunteer orientation near the end of May. If you are unable to attend the orientation, please let our volunteer coordinator know by emailing or calling 360.385.3628 x115.

While we welcome you to work as many shifts as you like, working a total of six hours will earn you a free R2AK Minion t-shirt!

Only on-land volunteer shift signups are listed. If you have a boat, would like to help out on the water or in the race war room, please contact Race Boss Daniel Evans at
