SATURDAY, APRIL 23, 2016
REDWOOD SHORES, CA
There are not many traditions in the collegiate rowing community that match the color, consistency or intensity of the Washington/California rivalry.
Rivalries are formed from conflict, and they’ve existed since the beginning of time.
Conflict in a sporting rivalry creates excitement that make events like the UW vs. Cal Dual a can’t miss on Saturday, April 23, at Redwood Shores, CA.
Whether it’s the story of Joe Rantz and the impact of the Great Depression on his life, or “The Boys in the Boat” versus the ideological conflicts that shaped WWII, or the 1936 UW Olympic crew against the Nazi rowers racing in front of Hitler, all great stories contain conflict.
Since 1903, UW has raced against Cal in “The Dual.” Read about the history here.
The Husky Men (73-30 and 1 tie) and Husky Women (23-16) are looking to add another victory in the series this Saturday.
We’d like to invite you come to this weekend’s Cal Dual races, hang out with other UW parents, alumni and fans, and cheer on our crews. During the races enjoy bagels, fruit and coffee under the tent at Paragon Point area. See map and directions to the race course below.
We would also like to invite you to join us again a few weeks later at the Pac12 Championships at Lake Natoma in Sacramento on May 14 and 15.
Please RSVP to let us know if you will be coming to one or both of the races, or if you would like to volunteer to help at one of these events. Contact us directly at [email protected] or 916-730-3335.
We look forward to seeing you at one or both of these events!
