Race to Alaska Podcast
Published on January 27th, 2024
The Race to Alaska will hold its 8th edition in 2024, continuing with its 750-mile course from Port Townsend, WA to Ketchikan, AK. And now there is a podcast series prior to the June 9 start. In this episode, Race Boss Emeritus Daniel Evans chats with Hobie-hopefuls Tips Up and Race Boss Actual meets Sail Like a Mother.
Team Tips Up
John and Kaila have a Hobie 16. John and Kaila think that sailing a Hobie 16 is a good idea. John and Kaila might be nuts. Either that or perhaps they’ve got solid plans and tons of experience under their belts that will help them get 8 feet of boat per person to Ketchikan. Race Boss Emeritus, Daniel Evans, came out of the cave of solitude just long enough to chat with Team Tips Up about sacrifice and how they’re going to beat boats twice their size.
Team Sail Like a Mother
Let’s welcome back the good vessel Wild Card. That’s right, email-reader, the famed 2018 third-place-finishing/first-place-losing Santa Cruz 27 is here again, helmed anew by a trio whose kids will grow up with an inferiority complex due to the myriad exploits of their mothers. Meet Bri, Katie, and Melissa—the sailors of Team SLAM. Listen in as the Race Boss demands confessions, grills them on their medical preparedness, and inquires about the Mark Aberle curse.
