Thanks to Everyone for a Great Race!

What a great day! Thanks to each of you for making this a fun, safe, and successful event.

I have finally roused from my after-race stupor and race results are posted.
Congratulations to each of the racers! I hope you will come back next year. And bring a friend.

Looking ahead to the tides, the 2015 races are likely to be this same second weekend of the month, but we'll coordinate with the SEP Series and let you know.

Again, thanks to racers, volunteers and sponsors for making this event possible.
Happy paddling to all!
