I worked for several years with Jeff Hug. He left in 2019 and I’ve been deeply saddened since. But when you like somebody’s company, you stay in touch. Jeff and I caught up at Creve Coeur Lake today. I race there most Tuesdays in the summer and he lives nearby. So Jeff came out to the lake and we had a chance to paddle together in person and catch up.
After I finished my race around the like, Jeff wanted to try out my Epic V7. I find it to be the slowest of the fast race boats. At 22 inches wide, it takes new people fast without being extremely tippy.
I was impressed with his skill, but slightly sad that I didn’t get to see him tip over 🙂 Still a great day!
