It was like an Oprah giveaway show for our Different Strokes paddlers, “So look under your seats folks, YOU GET A MEDAL and YOU GET A MEDAL and EVERYBODY GETS A MEDAL!”

Congratulations to all the paddlers who participated in the regatta!

Thank you to the Coaches Anna Cat Tan and Victor!!!

And to our lovely volunteers!!! Sarah Joan Brigette!!! We couldn’t do what we do without you XOXO

A special shout out to the Opens Crew that fielded or in this case watered a full crew of fellas, YEAH! 22 to be exact.  They didn’t make it to the finals (Race draws… say what?!?), but they did finish both heats with the 6th Fastest Time.  Forwards and Upwards Gents!

And now for some select shots from the day, here are the men, calendar coming soon 🙂
