Information

Island Quest is just over 2 weeks away and things are coming together nicely.  We wanted to get all you racers and potential racers an update on what the course looks like and what you need to do.

Step 1:  Get registered.  If you are procrastinating, now is the time.  Click here and get’r done.  Don’t forget to also reserve your spot at Camp Moran.  $40 for both Friday and Saturday night lodging, and for some food.  Can’t beat it.   

Step 2:  Get ferry reservations.  You will need to catch a ferry from Anacortes WA to Orcas Island.  A third of the boat will open for reservations 2 weeks before your sailing.  That means that tomorrow morning at 7 am, you should be ready to get your reservations for getting on Orcas Island Friday Sept. 29th.  Do the same on Sunday or Monday for leaving the Island.  Click Ferry Reservations now.
