Elsie Piddock enters Thomas Basin (KPU Webcam photo)

S/V Elsie Piddock has arrived in Ketchikan today (6/12/15) about 12:58 Alaska time and were greeted by a small crowd of enthusiastic onlookers at the Fish House dock. These guys earned their win–they pushed on 24 hours a day with only one stop to wait for tides; they endured days of bashing to windward in rough water. They had some good breaks in the way of wind and tides, but were only able to capitalize on them because of their great effort.

There are still many boats behind them, each having their own adventure, but there’s no doubt about it–these guys earned their win. Congratulations to the crew of the Elsie Piddock.
