    Default Port Townsend Festival & Small Boats 2022

    If you're headed to this year's Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival, I hope to see some you Forumites at this event:

    In 2019, I was lucky to have three months off from work. For six weeks of that time, I headed to the Inside Passage. Sailing the IP in an 18-foot open boat was a tremendous adventure.

    I created a storytelling show about the trip just before the pandemic, but most of the performances were canceled for health reasons. People kept asking if I would revive the show and after thinking about it, decided to start it up again.


    Here’s my description for the festival:

    Come on this 400-mile journey with me through through a one-man story show (with costume changes!) You'll hear tales of rowing long days, encounters with whales, peaceful anchorages, running rapids, and sailing across the Strait of Georgia.

    *Portland show on Saturday, September 3, 6:45pm at Sunnyside School Park (SE 35th & Yamhill). If we get rained out, we'll try again on Sunday at 6:45.

    *Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival on September 10, 9:30am. Adventure Stage.

    Cool. I'll be there too, on the boat and as part of the facilities crew.

    EBS Saturday night?

    If you would have a good boat, be a good guy when you build her - honest, careful, patient, strong.

    Bruce, Stromborg, et. al.
    I'm not finding a day by day list of presenters/seminars for the festival on the official site or elsewhere online. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
    Thanks.

    Welcome, and thanks! (I'm really falling behind in posting photos, too much summer! Another great season on the water.)

    I'll probably be anchored off the beach in front of the Northwest Maritime Centre for the festival... or I might drag my Scamp above the high water line if the wind gets too crazy. Love sleeping on that beach! Say hi if you see us there.

    All the best,
    Dale

    Will do if I can. Trying to juggle some work stuff, hoping to get there this year for a day anyway. Cheers, DB

    Dale and all,
    Well....shoot...I've been directly exposed to Covid (family member) so the Fest. is out for me this year as I could be asymptomatic (so far). Bummed. I was hoping to meet some of you, see your boats and reconnect with musical performers that we shared Fest. stages with in years past. Have fun-will be there "in spirit".

    We can't come this year as we can't leave the house yet...lack of lockable space kinda precludes bailing for a few days. I will, however, be thinking of you all and will have to do my solo EBS in honor of the resumption of festivities! Hope y'all have a good one!

    Dang it. It's been 11 years since my one-and-only visit to the Festival in PT. And I won't be coming this year either...

    I'm hoping there will be a thread/threads with lots of photos and stories.
