de Fuca Downwind June 12

On June 12, 2010, the inaugural de Fuca Downwind race takes off from Freshwater Bay and heads, downwind of course, 13.5 miles to Hollywood Beach in Port Angeles. All the info is on the Olympic Raft & Kayak web site, and be sure to connect with us on Facebook!

Gabe Newton came up with the idea for the race after researching the weather trends for the area and finding that prevailing downwind conditions are most reliable in June.

Many thanks to Dick and Jason at Discovery Sea Kayaks of Friday Harbor, major sponsors of the Downwind and 2-time awardees as one of National Geographic Adventure's best outfitters in the world...
...and to the Red Lion Inn on the finish line at Hollywood Beach, official hotel of the Downwind.
