You might have seen the canoes if you’ve been out on Alki this morning – Leann did, and shared her iPhone clip. While the hydros zip across Lake Washington, on this side of the city, it’s a low-tech boat race – the annual “DaGrind” outrigger-canoe race to Blake Island. Find out more about it here.

ADDED 5 PM: Thanks to April Long for sharing photos!

Another big boat race from Alki is just three weeks away – Sound Rowers’ Cross-Sound Race is coming up on August 25h.
