Pardon the important omission in last email about Rat Island Regata
WA State Discover Pass Required for Fort Worden State
Park (and Fort Flagler if you camp there). $10/day pass or $30/annual pass -- strictly enforced. (a ticket costs much more than a pass). -- plus its a good deal for a worthwhile government organization.
Parks provide human powered boat racers with great public water access!
You can also buy it at the park, but only during their office hours. I strongly recommend buying it in advance, either online, at any other State Park, or at Retail Outlets who sell them (see online). This will save you hassle if you come late Friday night.
