This weekend is the opening day of boating season and the Windermere Cup crew races. We are proud of Windermere’s sponsorship of this event and thought we’d share with you a bit about it.
The Opening Day regatta has been a part of the opening day of boating season since 1970. In 1987, the race’s sponsorship by Windermere Real Estate, Inc. started the Windermere Cup Regatta. Since 1987, teams from China, Australia, Russia, South Africa, and the Czech Republic, among others, have come to race against the men’s and women’s rowing teams from the University of Washington on the Montlake Cut (excerpt from UW site).
For more information about many of the events surrounding the Opening day of boating season, check out this Seattle Times article.
One day we’d love to be out on a boat during opening day festivities, so let us know if you need additional crew members-we’ll bring yummy food and drink!
If you happen to be down at the lake on Saturday be sure to cheer for our very own Windermere Dragon Boat team as they paddle by!
