The 1936 Danish spidsgatter PAX will make her 13th appearance with Kaci at the 2019 PTWBF. From that first Boatyard Stage appearance in 2007, marine trades craftspeople and the former owners and families of PAX have added to the story… the reconstruction of a boat and the restoration of families’ history. Kaci spent 7 years tracking down the mysteries of PAX’s long lost history in British Columbia, California, and Denmark. What she found changed her life—made her an author—and has inspired thousands of readers around the world.
Come see PAX and nearly 300 other beautiful wooden boats during the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. Tickets to the entire event are required and help support year round programs at the NW Maritime Center. Get your tickets here.
I’ll be onboard PAX throughout the weekend. Buy a copy of FINDING PAX [which to my amazement was shortlisted for the UK’s 2018 MountBatten Best Book Award and 2019 Oklahoma Book Awards in Non-fiction!] or bring your copy to the boat and I’ll sign it.
I love sharing PAX and hearing from readers. If you haven’t done so yet, drop me a line and let me know what you thought of the story.
