The sixth annual Pocket Yacht Palooza will be held Saturday, July 22 at the Northwest Maritime Center in Port Townsend, and will feature more than 60 small boats on the Commons, along the adjoining beach and next door at Point Hudson Marina.
The Palooza is a celebration of small-boat design, showcasing the widest variety of watercraft--wood, fiberglass, rowing, paddling, sailing and even a few small, traditional motorboats. There is some emphasis on boats suitable for camp cruising, but all interesting designs are welcome and equally appreciated.
Members of the Port Townsend Pocket Yachters club enjoy using small rowing, sailing and paddling boats--primarily traditional designs that are trailerable, affordable, functional and just plain fun.
The annual three-day Palooza Crooza for small boats will begin the morning after the Pocket Yacht Palooza--Sunday, July 23, with 30+ boats departing the Northwest Maritime Center.
