From six countries, three continents, all around the Pacific Rim, the Racers and Ambassadors have arrived in Bellingham, WA for the 2014 Pacific Rim Challenge.

The weather looks to be spectacular with highs in the 70’s to 80’s and winds in the 10-15 knot range for the week.  The trips for the Ambassadors to Peace Arch Park, Artist Point, Bellingham Museums, Boeing, Friday Harbor and the Skagit Wildlife Reserve all will require sunscreen and cameras.
