Meet Kori and Port Ludlow’s Seafaring Dog

Sir Christopher Ludlow Sampson

If you’ve been to the marina lately, you may have noticed a cute little Welsh Corgi trotting along a dock or taking an afternoon nap in the sun. That would be none other than Sir Christopher Ludlow Sampson, Port Ludlow’s seafaring dog and loyal companion of Marina Manager Kori Ward. While Sir Christopher has been “working” at the marina for the nearly seven years, Kori’s history with the Resort At Port Ludlow spans two decades.

Marina Manager Kori Ward

 Growing up in a boating family that made its home on the Hood Canal, Kori has always been at home on the water and was naturally drawn to a maritime career. She hired on as a dock attendant at the Resort in 1992, and worked her way up to Dock Master and finally to Marina Manager. She is the “go to” person for long-term moorage arrangements and manages a marina staff of seven.

Working with Port Ludlow’s resident boating community and the many guests that boat-in to the Resort or kayak on Ludlow Bay is what Kori loves best about her job. She is extremely knowledgeable, and regularly fields a variety of questions.

Asked what question she gets the most from visiting boaters, Kori replies, “what is the average temperature of the water in Ludlow Bay?”

If you’re reading this post, you may live in Port Ludlow or perhaps you’ve enjoyed a stay at the Resort. Do you know the answer? If so, tell us – or share your best guess – with a comment below! Kori promises to provide the answer next week.

Now that summer is finally here, we hope you’ll come out and enjoy the marina often — whether it’s from the water or while relaxing with a glass of wine on the veranda and watching the boats go by!
