Challenging Race to the Straits

The Sloop Tavern Yacht Club’s Race to the Straits in Seattle, WA is all singlehanded or doublehanded teams. Saturday’s leg to Port Townsend was a light wind, current-plagued challenge. Sunday’s leg back was with plenty of breeze from the north. In the six-boat J/105 doublehanded class, it was John Aitchison’s MOOSE UNKNOWN that took honors, followed by Matthew Gardner-Brown’s DULCINEA in second and Sara Billey’s PEER GYNET in third.
