R2AK 2018

posted in: Sailing | 0

Race to Alaska (R2AK) 2018, Stage 2, began today. This is a race up the Inside Passage, with no motors & no support. However participants can stop and resupply along the way. “The intent is to be unsupported between towns, and function self-supported when in towns.”

The race began in Victoria at noon and continue until participants reach Ketchikan – or are tapped out by the sweep boat. Other than two waypoints along the way (Seymour Narrows and Bella Bella) there is no official course.

Sounds like fun (except for navigating Seymour Narrows without a motor).
