One Weekend, Two Races

Good opening weekend of racing for us Puget Sounders...
The Gig Harbor Paddlers Cup was Saturday and featured a 4-lap, 6 mile race.  Cyril Burguiere came up from Portland and the two of us drag-raced around for 60 minutes and 40 seconds... we averaged 5.89 mph on 14 foot boards and in the end Cyril bested me by 6 seconds... It was a great race...

Here are some pics from that race taken by Scott Vande Vusse:




The second day featured the Dan Harris Challenge in Bellingham, only 5 SUP's on the 3.6 mile short course, but it was still a fun day and another great work out...
