Port Townsend: How This Legendary Boat-Town Was Built
Wednesday, February 24th – 1900 GMT/UTC
with Kaci Cronkhite and Carol Hasse
How did a sleepy little port town in the 1970s become a lively year-round mecca of wooden boat builders, sailors, marine trades, and maritime educators? What worked and didn’t? How have we weathered the storms and rallied? What gives us hope for the future?
Join legendary sailor/sailmaker Carol Hasse (co-founder of the Wooden Boat Festival and long-time board member of both Wooden Boat Foundation & NW Maritime Center), and circumnavigator/author Kaci Cronkhite (Director of Wooden Boat Festival for a decade) sharing behind the scenes personal stories and highlights from decades of involvement — in hopes it inspires and helps people in other places.
