Summer in Seattle
Mon July 16, 2012
Seattle's Duck Dodge turns 38
Summer is underway, and with it comes a long-standing Seattle tradition: the Duck Dodge. Nearly every Tuesday night, dozens of sailboats and dinghies do laps around a triangular course on Seattle's Lake Union. The Dodge has been around for 38 years, and it draws anywhere from 50 to 90 boats each week.
Captain Jiri Senkyrik, a Duck Dodge regular, says the prizes are dignity, pride, and a little gold duck sticker to display on your mast.
The rules are pretty simple. Basically, no hitting, no bribery (when anyone’s looking) and most importantly, never make a duck change its course.
