RACE TO ALASKA 2017 RUCKUS

The third annual R2AK kicked off last night (6/7) with a a preview of some of the racers and their vessels followed by the traditional “ruckus” which included beer provided by Port Townsend Brewing Company and wine by the recently opened Port Townsend Winery. Uncle Funk and the Dope 6 put out some high energy dance grooves which got the crowd fired up! The weather was perfect for this first of many summer events in lovely Port Townsend.
