Welcome to Sound Rowers

Annual meeting – November 14, 10 AM

Join our yearly meeting on Zoom! Details and agenda here. Open to all members. Meeting agenda includes the election of the officers and trustees, establishing the race schedule for the coming year, and any other issues that might arise during the year. Members are encouraged to be involved – attend the meeting, run for office!

Sound Rowers in-person events are currently suspended, but we are exploring options to open the racing season safely. Meanwhile, you can join our Live Zoom Races or the ongoing Erg Race Challenge

You can also see race results for previous years or our race photography.

Please do continue training, in your homes, or on the water – keeping a respectful social distance. Please share any photos or videos you have on how to maintain fitness in this medical emergency. Please stay cheerful in this difficult time. We hope to be on the water with you soon.

Sound Rowers Open Water Rowing and Paddling Club is a volunteer organization conducting open water races for world class and weekend athletes in any sea-worthy human powered water-craft. We sponsor races for kayaks, surf skis, rowing shells, rowboats, canoes, pedal boats and more throughout Puget Sound. There are more than a dozen different racing classes for all levels of competition, from recreational paddlers to Olympic athletes. Nonmembers are welcome to participate – all you need is a boat, a paddle, a PFD and whistle (required) and a nominal entry fee.


If you paid for 2020 membership, or still want to join for this year, your membership will be active until the end of 2021 – so will be valid all of this year and next. Alternatively, to request a full refund, you can contact our Membership Director: surfski@gmail.com.
