I saw all these different types of sailboats at the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend, Washington. Some were racing, some were cruising, and some were taking guests out for a sail. Port Townsend is one of the preferred sailing sites in the Puget Sound because the winds are so favorable. This painting represents one of the delightful features often seen in Port Townsend, WA.
