Heading out for the 500m open women race at the champs
The Rooster Rock Race June 27 in Oregon
A great new race on the PNW Race Schedule. Hosted my Mountain Home Canoe Club in Portland. We had two crews participating. A women and a mixed crew. Both of them did very well in the competition and placed 4th in the open women and 2nd in the mixed division. The 10 mile race was very exciting with lots of different condition, upriver with the wind against the current and then downriver after turning at a Rock Island in the river and then fighting the wind and waves, finding the fasted current. The fight to the green turn buoy and then the final 2 miles upriver again and the competion on in your wake, breathing down your neck. The crews worked very hard and the results are well earned.
Staying ahead of the competition with 2 miles to go.
