Renegade crew

March 8th, 2005 · 2 Comments


The other day as we came home from Seattle on the ferry, I spied the Bainbridge crew practicing in Eagle Harbor. Little did I know that they were breaking the law: an article in Saturday’s Review revealed that rowing club members, training at 8 or 9 knots, are still subject to wake restrictions limiting all watercraft to 5 knots. On Tuesday March 1, an appeal to the Harbor Commission to change the ordinance allowing watercraft propelled by only human power (to) exceed the uniform speed limit. was denied, citing safety concerns.

    Cool picture (no purple hue:). I guess I understand safety concern reasons, but… the things that are or, rather are NOT protected by law just make me crazy!

    Yes, I took this picture before the camera took it’s last big falls! I’m not sure what the solution is but I do wonder why the crew is breaking the law.
