Summer Movie About the Sea

“Race to Alaska”, if l heard right l caught only the second showing ever of this indy film. Film covers moments from this race since 2015.

It is a simply ridiculous, dangerous whatever floats race up the inside passage. From bigger faster sailboats to modified Hobie cat and a guy on a SUP. 750 miles.

If you have a chance to see it, take it.

IIRC, 2015 was the inaugural R2AK and it did attract an odd, extremely varied assortment of vessels, some of which quickly fell apart or otherwise failed to make it even a few miles from the start.

A lot of people spent a lot of money on a pipe dream. Others actually prepared themselves and their gear to make a serious stab at finishing.

I was living in PT at the time. The descriptions of the participants and their boats was, umm, amusing. After the first couple of years, the funky-chicken weird variety narrowed down to a more sensible range of possibilities.
