UW Rowing Team


The University of Washington Department of Intercollegiate Athletics prides itself on excellence in every facet of operation. For the more than 650 student-athletes competing in 22 varsity sports, the standards are set high in competition, in the classroom, and beyond. Husky Crew exemplifies these values.

The 30-year partnership the UW and Windermere Real Estate have developed through the annual Windermere Cup regatta is a strong one because of a mutual commitment to excellence. Husky UW Athletics is extremely pleased to be part of such a wonderful event and partnership and is looking forward to many more years to come.
