2011 Anacortes workboat races

A few pictures from the 2011 Anacortes Workboat Races.  This is an annual affair in August.  The official line is “honor the Workboats and the people that run them” – my take is it is a small town that wanted a party and a get together and do some boat racing.  This is one of those small town event where most everybody seemed to know each other.  Even the ferry got into the act doing a series of spins, rotating like a top on one of their trips.

A small town flavor for sure with music, BBQ, party on the dock, the things small towns do, nothing fancy just a good time at the Anacortes Workboat Races.

I hope you enjoy the pictures.
