Windermere Professional Partners Team Wins 2nd Place at Gig Harbor Paddlers Cup Dragon Boat Race!

April 25, 2018

The mountain was out, the sun was shining bright, and a great time was had by all at the seventh annual Gig Harbor Paddlers Cup at Skansie Park last weekend!

The Cup features three events: The Cross Narrows Challenge, the Inner Harbor Races, and the Dragon Boat Races. Saturday starts with the Cross Narrows Challenge, a 6-mile open water race taking participants from The Harbor to Point Defiance and back. After the Cross Narrows Challenge comes the Inner Harbor Races, which consist of 5K and 10K distance races within The Harbor. Then on Sunday, the Dragon Boat Races! A “Fast, Furious, and Fun” race for all skill levels! All three events support the Gig Harbor Canoe and Kayak Racing Team.

The Windermere Professional Partners team brought their A-game! The team consisted of WPP REALTORS®, staff, and their families who rowed together for a 2nd place victory out of 10 dragon boats! (The most boats that the race has ever had!)

It was REALTOR® Erin Farquhar’s third year participating in the Dragon Boat race, and she says, “We just rocked it! We all came together and paddled in sync which is key in Dragon Boating. It was really neat to have that happen.” And added with a laugh, “My bench mate was Nick Dahl and he was very motivating!”

Erin loves that the race provides a fun way to spend a day with her fellow WPP peeps and their families outside of the office and day-to-day activities. “Coming together to do something fun and different, and enjoying time together while growing together as a team is amazing, plus, it’s for a great cause!” Says Erin.
