Racers Renick Woods and Tom Hanny get buzzed by a bald eagle at the first Stroke the Slough SUP race on the Sammamish Slough on July 29.
Paddlers had a choice of the long course: Redmond to Kenmore; or the short course: Out and back two-miler from Log Boom Park.
Fifty-seven athletes participated, and their families greeted them at Log Boom. Profits, about $500-plus, were donated to The Surfrider Foundation.
