Great day of paddling for the team! We raced with 18 paddlers and focused on the development for our 5 rookie paddlers. We can see our potential as a team, as we addressed technique and rate issues… And… we had lots of fun! That is success! Congratulations to our team members.

 

Our first race was in a BuK boat with a time of 3:01.870

This is a video of our 2nd race.  We came 3:01.430 in a Gemini boat.
Marc smiles, while waiting for our 3rd race.  We came 3rd in a Gemini boat with a time of 2:59.800.  Hurrah, we broke 3 minutes!
