Battle of the Stations – Windermere Cup Media Cup Crew Races on May 4
On Wednesday, May 4, Seattle’s local TV news teams will battle it out along the Montlake Cut for the fifth annual Windermere Cup – Media Cup crew races. Led by captains Mike Ferreri (KOMO), Joyce Taylor (KING), Bridgett Turell (Q13), and Cale Ramaker (KIRO), the teams each consist of some of Seattle’s best known local media personalities.
The KOMO team has taken home the highly coveted Media Cup trophy four of the past five years after losing to KIRO in the race’s first year. Bragging rights are a major objective of these highly competitive crews, but they’re also in it for charity. The winning team receives a $500 donation from Windermere Real Estate to go to their non-profit organization of choice.
So come down to the Montlake Cut at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 4, to see an epic battle of the Seattle news teams. And then join us again on Saturday, May 7 for the 30th annual Windermere Cup Regatta.
