Come cheer on the Husky men’s and women’s crews as they face their biggest rival, the California Bears, this Saturday on the Montlake Cut. Racing goes from 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. rain or shine!
The New York Times bestselling book, The Boys in the Boat, has recast the spotlight on the fierce rivalry between Washington and Cal. The rowing powers will go head to head this Saturday for the 104th time in a regatta that played a central role in the book.
Fans are encouraged to watch the races from Canoe House at the NE end of the Montlake Cut, the Montlake Bridge or at the Finish Line at the west end of the Cut at West Montlake Park near the Seattle Yacht Club. If you can’t make it to the Cut, tune into the live stream of the races online.
It’s a fun family event and an opportunity to see the four-time defending National Champions UW men’s crew in action.
The Windermere Cup is up next on May 2.
