Bring your sense of humor, a little bit of daring, and a whole lot of enthusiasm. We're looking for people who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty and help us keep Port Townsend's adventure sailing race thriving!
What would that look like? It’s a rogues’ gallery of scoundrels, infamous sailors, backyard heroes, and bold adventurers. You'll get a chance to be part of the action, meet some famous sailors, and send them off with an proper party.
VOLUNTEER SUPPORT COMES IN THREE FORMS:
On the Ground
Volunteer opportunities in Port Townsend and Victoria include registration, finish line ops, bartending, traffic, selling merch, and more!
We're looking for people who can think on their feet, work well within a structured safety system, and understand that this hard work is what keeps race teams safe.
We're looking for people to help us bring action and excitement to the fans. Set up a video station, get out there with your drone, and help us capture all the action in real-time.
Our parent organization, the Northwest Maritime Center, handles our volunteer recruitment. If you're new to volunteering for the Northwest Maritime Center and our events, please fill out our 2023 Release Waiver. Please note that if you filled out the volunteer application in 2022, you will need to complete a 2023 release waiver.
ON THE GROUND
Race to Alaska: It's big and it's fun. You'll want to be a part of it, and we want you to be too! Volunteer shifts in Port Townsend and Victoria include registration help, poster distribution, finish line ops, bartending, traffic, selling merch, and more. You'll also get a volunteer t-shirt for completing at least two shifts.
Positions for racer safety support are skill-specific. We aren't looking for master mariners in every position, but we need people who can think on their feet, work well within a structured safety system, have the ability to work hard and sometimes long hours, and understand that this work is what keeps race teams safe during this focused challenge!
We are looking for camera folk, social media jockeys, and folks willing to take some short videos for social media and our website. Have a drone? Join the teams that run around our race course helping to document these incredible efforts of racers. We know we are asking for a lot and are willing to shower you with appreciation, photo or video credit, and help to make your efforts as simple as possible.
