Event description

Description

Join Hood Canal Events and the Hardware Distillery as we race a barrel of aquavit across the Hood Canal at the 3rd annual FjordinCrossin in Hoodsport, WA. Traditional Norwegian style "Linie" Aquavit that has been produced for over 200 years, its distinct flavor occurs by crossing the equator and returning. The Hardware Distillery makes its version of aquavit by crossing the canal and returning.

The paddle race is a professionally timed 3-mile course and is open to any non-motorized vessel. We will start by sounding the horn, participants will race to their boats and paddle the width of the Hood Canal, turn around and return in an effort to beat the barrel of aquavit back to the marina. All participants must wear PFD's equipped with an emergency whistle to participate in the paddle race. Rescue boats will be on hand to assist with any distressed paddlers and to mitigate other watercraft traffic in the waters during the event. Join us for the post-race celebration where we will taste the aquavit, have traditional Norwegian food and beverage and local vendors for this festival along the Hoodsport waterfront.
