82nd Sunset Race – 9/10/2015

Holy cow, what a great Sunset Race!

Role Call: in order of finish
Joey Hager => skinny wooden kayak 1st place
Joe Sartori => kayak
Hogan/JoJo => 17′ Grumman
Danielle Sartori => skinny kayak
Charles/Paul => 17′ Osagian

It was a great number of boats and we had ourselves an aluminum shootout! Grumman vs Osagian. I think the boats were equally matched, mine just had more experienced paddlers who knew the river. Nevertheless, they gave us a scare at the end and we had to pour on the power to maintain our place!

I have to say that after paddling fancy boats for a while now, its nice to go back to the pureness of an aluminum boat with no rudder. I had to focus on my paddling skills more to keep the boat going in the direction we wanted!
