Fjordin Crossin & Paddle the Canal – June 27, 2020

Hood Canal Events and The Hardware Distillery are excited to announce the 4th annual Fjordin Crossin. Fjordin Crossin is a fun family event that celebrates the old Linie Aquavit tradition of sending a barrel of Aquavit in a ship from Norway across the Equator and back to Norway. The rocking of the boat and the salt air is meant to improve the taste of the Aquavit spirit.  The Hardware Distillery pays homage to that spirit by sending a barrel of its aquavit across the Hood Canal, (our Fjord), with a festive Hoodsport celebration. In the same spirit Hood Canal Events hosts an annual Paddle the Canal challenge, where paddlers of all ages are welcome to join the 3-mile race across the canal and back to the Hoodsport Marina.
