I’ve tried contacting OA multiple times about the race and gotten no response. There doesn’t seem to be any way to register either.

While the web page has 2018 on it, the registration page is for 2017 and will not let you register.  Just wondering if anybody has any knowledge about whether it is happening this year.

Because I am trying to organize a trip out of the country around that date, I have been attempting to contact Outdoor Adventures for weeks, by multiple methods, including leaving messages, emails, and messages through their website. No response whatsoever. I think the material on the site is simply left over from last year - including the link to "2018 results"! Given the currents on December 9th, I think the only possible dates are December 2nd and December 16th. I had to go ahead and book travel on December 2nd so am hoping for the 16th.

Given that the current address is still listed as the store on 90th in Redmond that Dan Henderson took over with Cascade Canoe & Kayak multiple years back, and Dan has been out of there for at least a year now, I would assume the business has gone under and that’s why no one is responding.

Maybe time to look for someone else to take over as RD for the Deception Pass Dash?

After a bit more digging it looks like someone by that name is still active on Facebook. Has anyone tried messaging their Facebook page?

Heard from a friend today that Outdoor Adventures has decided not to run the race this year. In their words:  

"If we find a united paddle community who supports and values this event, we will definitely return next year."

There will be a group paddling the course on Saturday, December 1 at 10:08 (high slack is 10:28) if anyone is interested in an informal outing.

Good to know, thank you!

There will be a small group (two boats, rowing 2X's) doing the course this Saturday.  Launching at 11:00 for a 11:24 slack tide.  May or may not go around Deception Island depending on conditions.

Peter,

We may try and join you this weekend.

As for the official unofficial DPD, it looks like Sunday, December 2nd is the favorite date. 11:00 start
