COME ONE, COME ALL TO THE R2AK RUCKUS!
Pre-Race Ruckus! Come meet the crazy racers that are racing to Alaska starting at 5 AM Monday morning. and the racers that have just finished rowing and paddling up from Tacoma in the Seventy 48 race. Music, Beer Garden, Food Trucks, excitement! Oh, and dont forget to watch the classic yachts racing out on the bay too!
Sunday, June 2nd, 12–8 PM, and free…what!?
Pope Marine Park & Northwest Maritime Center
Let loose like you’re about to set sail for Alaska…with people who actually are about to set sail for Alaska. Give the racers a night to remember before their long, wet journey while you put faces (and hulls) to those blips on the tracker screen. See some race boats on the hard, get great food and drinks, and dance it up with great music. Uncle Funk and the Dope Six are back to rock Ruckus! Dancing, from 5 to 8.
Bring your sense of adventure and competitive spirit! And get a free tattoo! Yup, the artist of real tattoos, Clae Welch, will be offering his skill and if you decide to get a tattoo of the R2AK logo, we’ll pay for it.
THE PRE-RACE RUCKUS IS ALL THE SPIRIT OF RACE TO ALASKA, 10% OF THE DANGER.
