Duck Dodge

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.
