Seventy48 – in and done!

Team Go Mamas GO! consisting of Tracy and Heather in a double surfski was the fourth finisher overall, first women’s boat, and simply jaw-dropping amazing.

Traci C, team Old Enough to Know Better, finished 14th overall, first solo woman.

seventy48 details

Been a few questions about the race. The start is in the Foss waterway in Tacoma, near the Museum of Glass (that looks *awfully* narrow for 120+ boats!):

Tracy L may venture to Vancouver Island this summer, but Traci C has other plans that are not compatible. However, both are taking part in the newest brain-child of the folks who brought you the wild and wacky Race to Alaska (R2AK): the Seventy48. All the same drama, distilled into 70 miles in 48 hours! Tracy L is racing a tandem with Heather N from Bellingham Рthose two will fly! Traci C is using her Epic 18x Sport from her Alaska trip Рa bit slower, but tried and true. The adventure begins at 5:30pm on Monday June 11 in Tacoma, ends 48 hours later (or less, hopefully much less) in Port Townsend.
