Billed as “the Iditarod with a chance of drowning,” the inaugural Race to Alaska took place in June of 2015. The rules of the race were simple: captain a boat from Port Townend, WA to Ketchikan, AK, along the Inside Passage of British Columbia, with no motors and no support. The first boat won $10,000 and the runner up got a set of steak knives. This is the trailer for Our Race to Alaskaa film from Waterlust that documents the journey of brothers Tripp and Chris Burd, who took fourth place as Team FreeBurd.
