The Dan Harris Challenge will be the first race of the Think International Challenge, matching B.C.'s finest surf skiers against Washington's. The second race (Tour De Indian Arm) will take place in Deep Cove, B.C. on TBD.

For this year's International Challenge all surfskis will score points for their team, not just the top 16, making this years Challenge a competition of speed and participation.

We are again including the short course race. The short course will turn around at #2 (Point Point) buoy and return to the Start/Finish line at #4 buoy (north end of Boulevard Park).
As in prior years, rowers, pullers and paddlers will race each other along the Fairhaven and Chuckanut shorelines in what is becoming one of the most challenging and unpredictable races in the Northwest. Spectators can watch the mass start from Boulevard Park and Taylor Ave. dock as contestants sprint toward the Post Point buoy, or on the return to the finish at #4 buoy. A post-race BBQ awaits contestants, and volunteers. Friends and spectators can join the BBQ, too, with a $5 suggested donation.
Door prizes and awards take place at Boulevard Park, with the rest of the Dirty Dan Days celebration awaiting at the Village Green.
