Saturday Montlake Bridge Closed For Opening Boating Day

Opening Day of Boating Season Parade is on Saturday and the Montlake Bridge will be closed to vehicles from 10-4pm.

The 32nd annual Windermere Cup races start at 10:20am at the Montlake Cut with the Huskies men and women's teams.

The Montlake Community Club newsletter said:

Washington’s men and women are each currently ranked No. 1 in the nation in the most recent polls.  
Three international crews will travel to Seattle for the event. The UW women, who won the NCAA championship last year, will take on the Dutch National Team, while the UW men will compete against the reigning collegiate champions from Great Britain (Oxford Brookes University) and Canada (University of British Columbia). 
“This year’s Windermere Cup is like the World Series of rowing,” said Windermere president, OB Jacobi. “You have the number one collegiate teams in Great Britain and Canada competing against the national powerhouse UW men. Equally exciting is the matchup between the Dutch women’s national team, one of the top women’s rowing crews in the world, and the national champs UW women. It’s one of the best line ups we’ve had in the Windermere Cup’s 32-year history.”
