Come one, come all to the Pre-Race Ruckus!

Let loose like you’re about to set sail for Alaska…with people who actually are about to set sail for Alaska.

Give the racers a night to remember before their long, wet journey while you put faces (and hulls) to those blips on the tracker screen. See some race boats on the hard, get great food and drinks, and dance it up with Uncle Funk and the Dope 6.

Bring your sense of adventure and competitive spirit!  And get a free tattoo!  Yup, the artist of real tattoos, Clae Welch, will be offering his skill and if you decide to get a tattoo of the R2AK logo, we’ll pay for it.

Also Featuring:
Music starting at 5 PM
Plenty to drink thanks to Port Townsend Brewing
Burgers by Arran Stark of Jefferson Healthcare featuring Mt. Townsend Creamery.
More food by In Season Catering’s Salmon Wagon, Mo-Chilli BBQ, Kurly’s Fry Cart, and Fiddlehead Creamery, Paella House, Java Gypsy, and Pane d’Amore Grilled Cheese.

The Pre-Race Ruckus is all the spirit of Race to Alaska, 10% of the danger.
