Proposed Dates: 

Saturday, July 19, 2014 to Sunday, July 20, 2014


Pt. Townsend, WA, Puget Sound

Trip Plan: 

The Port Townsend Pocket Yachters are sponsoring their 3rd annual Pocket Yacht Palooza in Port Townsend this July 19th and 20th.  I attended the first Palooza in 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed it, sounds like it has become bigger and much more organized since then.  

Check out Pocket Yacht Palooza for more details.

We had a great time at the Palooza, last year (2013). Interestingly, we took our wooden Simmons Christmas Wherry that was NOT for sale. But, a couple made an offer we couldn't refuse. Because of that experience, I would mention that anyone wanting to sell might want to attend. No matter what; it will be fun. There wasn't much wind, so we didn't have the full group sailing adventure that we hoped for. It was great to also see the other boats and builders, many who were generous in their offers for on-board demonstrations, anyway. We did get some sailing in from Point Hudson to Fort Warden and back. We found out later that some went on to Rat Island for a picnic. Somehow that information never got to us. We still had a great time, and highly recommend attending.

I'm not going to be able to make it to the Palooza this year, but I sure hope if someone does go they will take lots of pictures and post them here on NWP either as a new Image Gallery or as a blog entry. Thanks!
