Today’s podcast is 3 interviews I recorded on June 3rd in Port Townsend, WA – the Prep Day for the inaugral R2AK (engineless race) which began June 4th.

First up: Marty Loken – builder, restorer, cruiser extraordinaire – commentary on the first ever R2AK.

Second: Quill Goldman of BarefootWoodenBoats.com – Entered in the race as “Team Barefoot Wooden Boat”. Sailing a freshly built 19′ transomless sloop.

Third: Denee Chaney – Entered in the race as “Team Un-cruise. Sailing an F25c trimiran (carbon over balsa – so yeah, there’s some wood there :D).
