PORT TOWNSEND — Twenty-four teams qualified for Sunday’s Kinetic Skulpture Race by completing the brake and float test Saturday, although one sank on the first try.
“The pontoons deflated and came loose,” said Tom Kendall of the local entry, “Smoke the Dragon.”
After a liberal application of duct tape, the entry managed to stay afloat.
Kinetic Skulpture racing activities begin at noon today at City Hall, 540 Water St.
Racing will run from noon until about 4:30 p.m.
An awards ceremony is slated for 5 p.m. at the American Legion Hall, 209 Monroe St.; a survivors’ party follows.
