NEIYA Heads North

Ever hear of this one? It’s a wild sounding race up the West Coast from Port Townsend, WA to Ketchikan, ALASKA.

Crazy weather, killer whales, fishing boats, packs of rabid sea otters, whatever the heck they have out there to deal with will challenge participants to the max.

Of course a hard-water sailor would have to be involved. Joachim Roesler is a land and ice sailor, and (possibly, I have to look it up) an NEIYA member. He will be sailing this craft and posting updates- check out the boat here:

Good luck Joachim! Send an update or two if you can-
