Welcome to Sound Rowers


For 2022, Sound Rowers racing on the water should be back to normal, with no restrictions on numbers or team boats. For popular events, race directors may still use Zoom for the pre-race meeting, and post-race awards. If there are local or state guidelines for outdoor watersports these guidelines will be adhered to. Check the website for each race for details.


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.
