Thousands of photos are being processed from yesterday’s exciting events. Stay tuned for lots of pics and video of all the fun.

Official race times will be posted as soon as I get the details from Capt. Doswell and the judges.

It was a great turnout! A big thank you to all who came out to cheer us on to the finish!

And to all our dedicated volunteers and friends who helped to make this years event a great success, thank you!

We couldn’t do it without you.
