Start salivating and getting pumped for the last Sound Rowers Race of the Season. :(
It's time for the annual Sausage Pull Race -- around Mercer Island. :))) Sat Oct 5th
10 am Race Start -- pre race at 9:15
Race starts and ends at Mt Baker Beach Park (along Lake WA Blvd, in Seattle
Long Course: 14.3 miles Round Mercer Island counterclockwise. Options for home stretch: south winds: north of I-90 floating bridge; north winds: stay south.
Short Course: 6.5 miles. South hugging east shore of Seward Park. Make counterclockwise 180° around orange buoy at southeast corner. Returning boats stay off shore to avoid collisions.
No matter which course you do, you'll be motivated to get to the finish line quickly -- for the tastiest feast on sausages around, grilled to perfection. (including some veggie options). Thanks to Rainer & Beverly!
directions, online registration (really helps in buying all those sausages), and more info: soundrowers.org. Please help your race directors by pre-registering.
Last race of season. Be there. Race hard. Feast well.
