Speed Crabbing Derby is Saturday in Everett

How fast can you harvest a limit of Dungeness crabs?

That is what will happen when crabbers converge at the Puget Sound Speed-Crabbing Derby July 20 at the Port of Everett.

Check in is 6:30 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. with the derby starting at 8 a.m.

The unusual derby is free, and open to teams of two, three or four crabbers who race against the clock to harvest and submit the 10 heaviest Dungeness crab they can catch in the shortest amount of time.

Teams are individually timed from the start signal until they finish the race by crossing the finish line. There is a maximum of four crab pots per team per boat. Each team must have a separate catch cooler to contain their 10 heaviest crabs.

Each vessel will be checked prior to the start of the race to make sure all gear and no crab are stowed in the boat. All boats must return by noon to the ramp, and for every 10 minutes after the deadline a boat will be penalized. Those who return after 12:30 p.m. will be disqualified.
