Poetry in Motion

The Huskies demonstrate a perfect blend of symmetry, timing and strength.

Some welcome spring with flowers. Some with horse races. In Seattle spring means the opening of boat season.

Sure, the boats are here all year round. But on the first Saturday in May the University of Washington’s stellar crew teams compete in annual races which draw thousands to line the banks of the Montlake Cut and cheer them on. In itsĀ  108 year history the UW crew teams have won 24 national championships, but winning the local Windermere CupĀ  remains a point of pride for the Huskies. The rest of us can only marvel at their dedication and precision.
