Tall Ship Challenge race not likely to be visible from Cape Flattery today

NEAH BAY — Sailing enthusiasts won’t likely be able to watch the start of the northwest leg of the 2002 Tall Ships Challenge today.

The six tall ships expected to compete in this leg — from Cape Flattery to San Francisco — will line up at noon west of Tatoosh Island.

The original time had been 2 p.m.

“Where they line up depends on wind direction and the weather,” retired professional tall ship mariner Bill Larson, 72, of Port Angeles, said Tuesday. “The race might not be visible from Cape Flattery.”

That’s because the boats will line up as far as 20 miles offshore, he said, noting that tall ship mariners previously hoped to begin the race closer to shore within sight of lookouts along the Cape Flattery trail.
