The fleet burst off the line!

Our second Redwood City race was much like our first. Good weather, good folks, and good times - literally.

We once again say our thank you's to the weather gods who delivered 60 degree temps and near windless conditions for the 40 plus racers tackling our 2 mile and 6 mile courses. With surfski, outrigger canoe, stand up paddle, and prone paddleboards in on the action there was something for everyone.Photo gallery & complete results at bottom.

Hint Water and Kind Bars kept the crew hydrated and well nourished. Pictured above team Schwarten (Geoff and Kai) power to the finish line and paddle of the day honors narrowly besting Robin and Henry Graham for the title.

The day started with a bit of chill in the air but quickly warmed to the delight of all the racers. We were stoked to see such a diverse fleet of craft. Our basic rule is if it faces forward it can race with us. We have to lay down a 'way-ta-go' to the whole clan from Sacramento. Thanks for driving all that way to play with us. And yes the 2 mile course here is actually 2.5 so you get 1/2 mile at no extra charge! Inside joke.

We will make an effort to update our records page, but we had record times in multiple categories. Bojan Benard, Amy Byers and Elaine Baden, Kenny Howell, Janet Walp, and a few others took advantage of one of the the highest tides of the year, and windless conditions to set new benchmarks.

We started out the awards ceremony with a new invention: The 'Crowd Sourced Positivity Pulse'. We sent a big shot of it to our friend Judy Jensen - take no prisoners Judy.

After racing the fleet was treated to free demo's of Epic Surfki's. We had the v5, v7, v8 pro, v8 pro double, v10s in the water and ready for action. We also set up a selection of Epic's carbon wing paddles for all to try. Special thanks here to Kenny Howell for making it happen. If you missed out on the demo do not worry. At 101 Surf Sports we will give any first time surfski paddler a free ride. No RSVP needed just show up to our San Rafael store and let us know you are ready to try surfski and the first taste is on us. We know you will love it. Super fast and easy to ride. Truly the best thing you can do sitting down.

Our next couple of races are set so sign up today l and get in on the fun.
