2013 DaGrind

DaGrind 2013 was another fantastic day or paddling and fun in the sunshine of Alki Beach. We had good turnout from crews around the Pacific Northwest, and a new course record was set for our current Blake Island course. The weather was just as sunny as 2012, with a good north breeze pushing against an outgoing tide (which made for exciting conditions, especially for the women and mixed long course race).

Seattle Outrigger Canoe Club would like to extend a warm mahalo to all our participants and attendees, as well as course officials and volunteers. We anticipate that 2014
