The following are photos shared by the crew of the Danish spidsgatter PIA who sailed from Olympia, to the islands for the Deer Harbor Festival. Afterwards, the fleet rested up in Watmough Bay, en route to the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival, in the sunny, memorable, summer of 2013. Thanks Aho´i!
