About the Dash

This event is open to kayaks, surfskis, canoes, and SUPs. The challenging 6+ mile race course takes paddlers through the swirling waters of Deception Pass! You don’t need to be an expert paddler to participate – but we do ask that you prepare (practice paddling, rolling, rescues, etc) and make safe decisions about your paddling ability on the day of the race (based on actual conditions). Conditions in this coastal pass are dynamic and unpredictable, so all participants should be prepared, well rested, and on the top of their game! All racers should have significant paddling experience and proven self-rescue skills. This annual Northwest paddling tradition is open to paddlers ages 16+. You can register online or by calling 425-883-9039.

Want to bring along a friend or family member? They can participate as a volunteer (they get great gifts too!). Volunteer are needed for… setup, tear-down, registration, on-water safety crew, food, timing, aid station, prizes, emcee, photography, videography and advertising. If you would like to volunteer please send an email to
Outdoor products and services make great prizes, and this is the PERFECT audience to promote your brand at the holiday season. If you would like to sponsor the Dash with a donation or contribution please let us know so we can get your logo on our promotional materials and provide you with shipping details.

If you have any questions about the event please let us know. We’re looking forward to paddling with you soon!
