The teams Let’s Row Maybe? and Interslice were in a back-and-forth battle for first place in the Race to Alaska shortly after the start of Stage 2 in Victoria, British Columbia.

Racers began Stage 2 at noon Thursday.

Interslice took the lead before temporarily falling behind Let’s Row Maybe? as the initial 18 teams in a field of 32 left Victoria.

The Race to Alaska started at 5 a.m. Sunday in Port Townsend for Stage 1, with 48 hours to make to across the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Victoria, B.C. — a 40-mile stretch.

The winner of the motor-less race of 750 miles to Ketchikan, Alaska will pick up a first-place prize of $10,000.

Thirty minutes into the start of Stage 2, the team High Seas Drifters was stalking the leaders in third place, followed by Lost But Don’t Care in fourth place and by Kootenay Pedalwheelers in fifth.

    Team Interstice is the other rowing boat that was in the lead yesterday, with Lillian Kuehl rowing solo to Alaska.

    Please correct the spelling of her boat's name!
