She Tells Sea Tales 2020 – Cancelled

We have officially decided to cancel the March 14th She Tells Sea Tales event. As you are well aware, we are navigating the impacts of Coronavirus on our community and it seems prudent to cancel this gathering.

The good news is that you can still get a taste of She Tells Sea Tales! We invite you to listen to KPTZ 91.9 this Friday, March 13th from 3:30-4:30 PM for a special reading from a few of our 2020 She Tells Sea Tales scheduled readers.

And if that wasn’t enough you can also access some of your favorite past readers (or years you missed) on the KPTZ website at  Thank you,  KPTZ!

We hope that you will consider donating the cost of your ticket. In the words of one of this year’s girls, “People should support the Girls’ Boat Project because it is important to learn woodworking and it is fun to be with so many capable women in our community.” This powerful program still needs your support.

If you would like a refund, email by March 17th. If we don’t hear from you by then we will assume that you are donating. If you would like to make an additional donation please visit:

Please join us for She Tells Sea Tales: an evening of sea stories told by female mariners in support of the Girls Boat Project, a program of the NW Maritime Center for girls aged 12-18.

The Girls Boat Project students gain skills and have fun in the maritime trades, both on and off the water. They learn woodworking and boatbuilding techniques in the fall and winter and receive longboat training in the spring. The program is led by female role models skilled in boatbuilding, woodworking, and sailing from the Northwest Maritime Center staff.

The event takes place on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at the Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water St. Port Townsend. Doors open at 6:00 PM, event starts at 7 PM. Beer, cider, and snacks available for purchase.
