Look at that churning water! 155 boats carrying 176 racers leave the starting line for the 5th Annual Deception Pass Dash.
Thanks to everyone who sent links to the pics, articles and other posts below. This is an awesome collection of memories of this year’s Dash. Keep checking back as I’ll add to the list below as I get more. If you have something you’d like to share, send the link to email@example.com. Thanks!
Don’t forget… the New Year’s Challenge happens on January 8th and is the second in a points-accrual series leading up to a championship weekend on Lake Washington in July.
Jeff and Theresa Knakal shot this sweet video from the stern of their Maas 2X rowing shell. Awesome! Fast too. Morris and Debbie drafting the rowing shell make quite a sight... they're so perfectly in time that they look like one paddler. Nice!

Gary Luhm got these amazing shots with incredible detail, that have had people speculating on discussion forums about what kind of equipment he was using. I think he’s just a really good photographer.
Sequim boys Don Rice and Michael Woods got some recognition in their local paper.
Brandon (2nd- HPK-M) and Heather (1st – HPK-W) Nelson blogged about the race. Heather is 6 months pregnant and is already signed up for the New Year’s Challenge, when she’ll be 7 months along. Does she need to enter as a tandem?
Tim Multrie from Canoe & Kayak magazine just sent me this link to his new article.
Your Race Director had a little time, thanks to all the volunteer help, to shoot some pics too.
Racer Michael Cline posted these pics on Flickr, saying “credits mostly to my wife” but won’t tell us what her name is.
