According to the Ketchikan Yacht Club's web site, Ketchikan offers some of the world's finest sailing and notes there is nothing like sailing through Southeast Alaska's mountains, with several species of whales, porpoises, seals, and sea lions.

The June Series races are sponsored by Davies-Barry Insurance Company and the next racing dates are June 14th, 21st, and 28th.
