Eric Lester Hughes
Eric Hughes was a key member of the Seattle Canoe and Kayak Club from its beginnings in the 1960s. He served on the board for over 35 years in all capacities. Our distance race is named after him to honor his long and tireless service to our club and to PNW paddling. You can read about Eric Hughes and the SCKC history on our history page.
In addition to serving SCKC for so many years, he was also instrumental in the early history of the University of Washington Gymnastics program and was inducted into the Gymnastics Hall of Fame.
