Warmup victory... with a stick!

Congrats to Wayne Horodowich, winner of the 6-mile race at Kayak Academy’s Greenland Week festivities on Lake Sammamish, November 6th. Here he smiles for the camera with his stick paddle and blue ribbon… and he’s thinking how much faster he’ll go at the Dash with that awesome wing paddle.

Go Wayne! See you next month!

Deception Pass Dash is coming!

Just a few weeks til the 5th Annual Deception Pass Dash, on Saturday the 4th of December. Last year's start (above) saw nearly 200 entries, and this year’s event looks awesome too with lots of great PR going out to the outrigger and SUP communities.

Fellow adventurer Steve Weilman just posted a couple of vids on his blog with highlights from the 2007 and 2008 races. Take a gander over there, stay tuned for more info, and sign up before November 15th to get the early bird price of $45 for race entry, tee shirt and a hot meal. If you'd rather stand watch than race, join the safety kayak crew. 2007's brave and talented rescue team is shown above. Contact Blair Corson to join the crew, or 425-883-9039. And we can always use a hand with check-in, timing, and results, so if you want to help out on land, contact Bill at or 206-940-6269.
