Race splashes in Saratoga Saturday

A whole lot of thrashing in Saratoga Passage’s waters need not concern any onlookers this Saturday morning.

The race just off the shores of Langley begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 8.

Put on by the South Whidbey Masters Swim Team, the 1.2- and 2.4-mile races are still open to registration for the triangular course in Saratoga Passage.

Organizers recommend spectators watch from Seawall Park and First Street in Langley, as the race may be seen from those views.

Volunteers are needed for the race’s set up and organization. Some volunteers will hold open salt water practice swims in Saratoga Passage during the first week of September.

For information about these practice sessions or to volunteer, email For more information and to register online, go to
