I’ve always thought of the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival as a broad, winding river full of stories and adventures. Each time I attend, I jump in with a destination in mind, but once in the current, I’m pulled along from one pleasantly unexpected island to another.

Last week, I went to the festival for the first time in years. Not only to jump into that river again, but to put closure on my voyage through the Inside Passage back in 2019. After I returned from that trip, people kept asking what it was like. I’d taken over a thousand pictures along the way, but couldn’t figure out which of those images could actually convey what I experienced during my weeks on the water.

So instead of a traditional slideshow, I created an immersive storytelling performance piece and planned a series of shows. Read the rest across the jump at 48N Sailing Magazine.
