Salish Sea Coastal Rowing is set to be pretty active on the racing circuit this year. A few of our members are registered and ready to race a number of races in the Pacific Northwest over the course of the year... and oh... did you know that the World Championships are coming to Victoria? Watch for some Salish Sea representation there!
But this post is about La Conner! One of the many very well organized races put on by our friends down in Washington State. Maybe you've heard of them? Sound Rowers?
These guys put on a whole slew of races each year complete with awards and soup... all for $20!! Races are open to any type of craft that is powered by humans (Paddle, Oar, Peddle... hands...) Check out their race schedule page here
Annette and Rebecca decided it was high time they did a race together and packed up the LiteBoat 2x and made the short trek down to La Conner in the torrential rain...
The rain managed to stop for the race. Annette and Rebecca cruised the 11k course in just over an hour and managed to snag a blue ribbon for their efforts!
Rebecca & Annette are appreciating the break in the rain...
You gotta love the orange...
Makes us easy to spot in a crowd.... still not raining!
After race soup and ribbons!
Curious about the other races our members are signed up for? Stay tuned for more!!
