Come one, come all to the Ross Island Race in Portland, OR. It should be a nice, relatively cool 74 degrees at the 8 AM Sunday start of the race.

Hope to see you there!

Pensacola International Coastal Regatta

Steve Wells
 

for details on "the 1st coastal rowing regatta in the U.S." check out RegattaCentral - Regatta Overview

 Note, they are including an open class for North American-style open water shells; however, they are employing a beach start and finish, which might be hard on our boats. It might be better to rent one of their coastal boats, if a 70+ lb. single sounds better to you.

Register for Lake Sammamish

watersprite
 

At the Commencement Bay race I only had to hand register three racers. Thank you all for pre-registering! Now lend a hand to Michael Lampi and his crew for the Lake Sammamish race and register right now:Sound Rowers: Lake Sammamish 2015 | Event registration | Webscorer


Note: apparently there is still some confusion out there - pre-registration just gets your information in our application, it does not commit you to racing. Although, what could be a better way to spend a Saturday morning?



Sound Rowers Banner whereabouts

Michael Lampi
 

Does anyone know where the Sound Rowers banner has gone? The last I saw it was at the Lake Whatcom Race.

I will be needing it for the Lake Sammamish Race this coming weekend.

Thank you!

Rat Island Race photography

Michael Lampi
 

I will not be able to attend this year's Rat Island Race. So, unfortunately, I'll miss Rainer's 80th birthday as well as miss taking pictures for the race.

If someone else could take over for the race photography I would be happy to process the photos and put them on the Sound Rowers web site, though it will be a couple of weeks before I'll be able to do it.

Help needed for Lake Sammamish Race

Michael Lampi
 

The next Sound Rowers and Paddlers race is at Lake Sammamish on May 30th! If you aren't racing and would like to hang out at the park, I could use help with the following areas:
  • Registration
  • Race timing
  • Food preparation
  • Tear down
  • Photography
  • Safety boat crew - we have the safety boats, we just need crew members!
Let me know if you would like to help.

Thanks!

Jetty Island photos now online

Michael Lampi
 

It was good to see everyone at the race yesterday. Even though the weather was a bit chilly and wet, I still had a bit of fun!

The photos are now online at http://soundrowers.org/racePhotos/2015/Jetty%20Island/index.html

There are perhaps a few too many of Tyler and his daughter as well as the Johnson/George OC-2, but that's what happens.

See you at Lake Whatcom!

Magik Oarlocks

Hi Steve,

I hope all is well with you, Maas Boat and Evergreen rowing and that you are looking forward to a good rowing season.

We have just taken on the distributorship for Magik Oarlocks in the USA and I wondered if you could let the Sound Rowers know. Magik Oarlocks have been unavailable for a few years but now we have them in stock and I am told they are excellent for open water rowing, I like them but have any comments from other open water rowers.

Anyway we have stock and they can be ordered from our site at www.magikrowing.us

As always we are happy to answer questions by email or phone

Have a great year

Best regards

Thanks to Michael Lampi's hard work, we are looking at consolidating all SR photography on the same server as our web pages.  If anyone has time or interest to test the new location, your help would be appreciated.  Mainly looking to see that 1. the photos are present, and 2. the response time is reasonable.


How to view them in their new location?  Open any of the photography sets from the main website ( http://soundrowers.org/Photography.aspx ) and replace "soundrowersphoto.org/photography" in the URL to "soundrowers.org/racePhotos".


For example, the recent Bellingham photos were originally posted here: http://soundrowersphoto.org/photography/2015/Bellingham%20Bay/index.html


The new location is: http://soundrowers.org/racePhotos/2015/Bellingham%20Bay/index.html


Thanks!
