On Sunday, November 6, all Mount Baker Varsity athletes will compete in the Head of the Lake regatta held out of the University of Washington’s Conibear Shellhouse.The Head of the Lake is a 5000m head race which begins in Lake Union, proceeds under the University Bridge, through Portage Bay and the Montlake Cut, makes a 180 degree turn past Fox Point, and finishes just east of the boathouse docks.
Racing is scheduled to go from 8:00 am until 10:30 am, although at this time the final schedule has not been posted.
Athletes are responsible for their own transportation to and from the race site. Parking is limited, so we encourage carpooling when possible. Coaches will inform the athletes of when they are expected to be at the race course. All athletes will need to meet at Mount Baker at 3:00 to unload the trailer.
