2020 brings a first in SAKE history as our Senior Women compete in the Club Crew World Championships in Aix les Bains, France! They will be racing in the Senior B Women division in a small (10-person) boat.

SAKE’s Senior Women are women over 40 years of age, with some in their 70s and 80s. They have spent the last two years building a tight-knit group of fun-loving women from all walks of life. Their practices are on Sunday mornings, with a second practice added in the summer racing season.

Representing Washington state and the United States in an international dragon boat competition of this caliber will be a completely new experience for the senior women of SAKE. They are excited about the challenge and working hard for the race in August, with the goal of fielding a full-size team in 2022, when the race is in Florida.
