KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The 2017 Race To Alaska crowned its third-place finishing team as it arrived in Ketchikan just after 3:30 p.m. on Friday afternoon.
Team Bad Kitty’s 750-mile voyage from Port Townsend, Washington lasted a total of five days, four hours and 55 minutes.
A crew of four Canadians from Surrey, British Columbia, Team Bad Kitty manned a 34-foot vessel named Yellow Catamaran.
Bob Davis, Ron Thomas, Paul Doran and Paul Thompson arrived in Ketchikan roughly 24 hours after the first-and second-place teams claimed their respective prizes.
Tailing Team Bad Kitty and still in pursuit of the finish line are teams Ketch Me If U Can and West Coast Wild Ones, who are expected in Ketchikan at some point during the weekend to eventually claim fourth and fifth place in the third-annual Race to Alaska.
At the time of publication on Friday evening, both teams were tracked just southeast of Prince Rupert.
