Win this kayak!

No, it doesn’t actually come with a bunch of beautiful ballet dancers. But if you buy a $25 ticket at Ocean Fest, you could win this amazing sea kayak – and all proceeds will go toward Ocean Fest and Tacoma CIty Ballet.

About the Quest

Made and donated by NC Kayaks, the Quest is a 17-foot single sea kayak. Fast and predictable, it’s proven for long distance touring. It tracks well, but can be turned in just a few strokes when edged, is very responsive, and has a playful feel to it. The Quest has a load capacity of three hundred fifty pounds and typically weighs around forty-six pounds.The Quest has two bulkheads, an eight inch round forward hatch, a nine inch by seventeen and a half inch oval aft hatch, and five and a half cubic feet of storage.

What’s the ballet connection?

Travis Goldman, co-owner of NC Kayaks, is also a long-time dancer with Tacoma City Ballet, which is performing at the festival. Thanks, Travis – we appreciate you so much!

How do I buy tickets?

Tickets are $25 each and will ONLY be on sale at Tacoma Ocean Fest at the NC Kayaks booth. Come buy some – then watch TCB’s astonishing “Whalesong” ballet at 12:30pm or 4:45pm, right after the raffle drawing! (You don’t have to be present to win. If you do, NC Kayaks will also deliver the Quest to any Tacoma location for you. Good luck!
