Congratulations to Dan Seto, Pam Huey and Kristine
Shum – who all went down to San Francisco and are

was a tight race with only 29/100ths second behind
them for silver medal and 42/100ths second behind them
for bronze medal.

The team raced 4 races each on Saturday.  2 mixed
races, + visiting team + Men's and Women's races – but
only 2 X on Sunday for Mixed Semi-final + medal round

Below is Kristine's report:

Hi Todd and Bob.  Great news…we won gold in REC A

Division.  We were behind, but caught up at the

halfway mark and surged ahead of CCSF near the end.



1. Concord Pacific Flyer Dragons – 2:24:28
2. CCSF 1 (City College of San Fran) – 2:24:57

3. Castaways (Portland) – 2:25:10



4. Vancity Thunder – 2:28:05

5. Extreme Currents (Kamloops) – 2:28:24

6  Killer Guppies Blue (LA) – 2:36:02 (I think.

Couldn't quite read my writing on a serviette.)



Didn't do so well in the Men's, Women's and Visiting

Team Cup race — in tough against Roli and Subaru.
