Off and running. Sat. 9 a.m. Blackwater access. Exit 89 to Blackwater, sign on left just past railroad tracks. Ran course Sat. plenty of water. This is a perfect flatware course with no discernible current. It is made to get your boat up to racing speed and hold it there. Technique and conditioning will win out. Long boats will really glide on this course.
Note-lost a helper so if anyone wants to be sweep boat let me know. Shirt (collectible) and gratitude  as payment.
There is a rumor floating that home made snickerdoodles will be available at end of race  Cheesy

Thanks to you and your wife for another great race and all you do for our sport.
If you missed this race you need to put it on your schedule for next year.
The cookies and brownies were worth  the 4 hour trip alone.

Agreed. This was a great race and a beautiful course. Easy access to the start and finish. Definitely a race to do next year. 13 miles on a nice Saturday was perfect.

Thank you for a fun day Charlie! I really enjoyed the cookies.

Ditto.  Absolutely fantastic course with no big challenges so you can focus on hammering down on the paddle!  Great chance to catch up with friends and spend some precious time together
