Spike Africa to Pause San Juan Islands Cruise to Join Wooden Boat Festival

Friday Harbor, Washington (July 20, 2016) – Schooners North’s famed vessel, Spike Africa, will take a break from cruises around the San Juan Islands to join the 40th Annual Wooden Boat Festival at the Port Townsend marina. This year’s festival will take place on September 9-11, 2016. There will be live music, delicious food, local brews, family friendly activities, exhibitions, as well as over 100 indoor and outdoor demonstrations.

The Wooden Boat Festival is held each year to provide an educational and inspiring experience for those who have a deep-seated appreciation for sailing and wooden boats. This is one of the biggest events of this kind and will feature over 300 boats both on land and water. Being a newly-restored 80-foot, 40-year old schooner Spike Africa will be one of the “tall-ship” stars of the show.
