Another Pt Townsend Wooden Boat Festival

Saturday September 10 I drove up to Port Townsend for the annual Wooden Boat Festival. As usual, the joint was very busy with plenty of people. I wanted to take the PTPuffin (who hasn't been wet since mid July because of the rest of life), but I didn't want to fight all the other boats and boaters at the festival.

Luckily, I ran into Dale who let me crew for him on Luna for about 4 hours in the PM for a wonderful little sail. We puttered around for awhile then found Mike in Tor and Simeon in Noddy. Skol sailed with us as well. Mike even got the spinnaker deployed on Tor for awhile.

Afterwards, Dale and I had a beer and hung out. We ran into Jackie Monies. I didn't even know she would be around. It was nice to see her again.

Next year, I would like to take an extra day off and put the PTPuffin in the water and maybe stay on her for the weekend.
