Re: Camping pre Rat Is. Regatta

Another option for campsites in the Port Townsend area is the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. It is located not far from Fort Worden and usually has campsites available when the fair is not running. Just another possibility.

Thanks for the reminder, so I could nail down a reservation.

FYI, Campers:  
If you've registered with Washington State Parks and forgotten your password, click on "Forgotten your password?click here"  To change the password after logging in, when you get to this page, click on "View, Change or Cancel a reservation online".

Currently, I see five campsites available at Ft. Flagler, upper campground, none in the lower campground.

Nothing available at Fort Worden nor at Fort Townsend.

Huki V1B for sale. Carbon fiber layup, 2 Amas: one flat water and one surfing. Three rudders: small, medium and surfing. Huki covers for hull and ama.  Really good shape. Some cosmetic flaws from use but well taken care of.  This is a good high volume canoe for a dry ride. It is fast!  Email me for pics.  You can pick her up at the Rat Island and race your new OC-1! $3000. Outfit would cost close to $6K to buy new.

Mark last weekend in June for

10am Race start; 9:15 pre-race meeting

Race begins/ends at the scenic and historic, Fort Worden State Park, Port Townsend
Course:  6.8. nautical mile (7.8 statute miles) course begins at Kitchen Shelter Beach at Fort Worden State Park, proceeds SE past downtown, Pt. Hudson, then across Bay to Fort Flagler, around Rat Island and back to park. 
Race hard; the Post Race Potluck is always a big tasty fuel replenisher. Bring something yummy to share.
As with all Sound Rowers races, participation open to all HumanPowered craft: Rowing shells (fixed and sliding seat) ; Outrigger/Dugout Canoe; Surfski/Kayak, SUP/Prone Paddleboards; Pedal Craft; DragonBoats
PFD, whistle, and ability to self rescue in Cold Water required.
For more info/directions:
ONLINE RACE RESERVATIONS (please, very helpful to race organizers, speeds up day of race paperwork/gets your name spelled right in Results --  and no commitment) -- required for racers under 18 yrs old 
Fort Worden/PT is such a great venue. Bring your bikes, Camp spend the weekend. Combine it with a some sort of downwind run on Sunday in Straight of Juan de Fuca (a la the de Fuca Downwinder).
If you are camping, book early. Campsite reservations at Fort Woren fill up fast.  Camping here is so popular that they have their own Reservation System. NO PHONE RESERVATIONS:
Have a splendid race weekend on the peninsula.Thanks in advance for your participation,Debbie

3. Discover Pass Required at Fort Worden State Park -- Rat Island Regat

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. 
State Parks provide human powered boat racers with great public water access!
Discover Pass easily obtainable online: 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.
