Race around Gordon’s Island, VA

My first kayak race, even though I’ve been paddling for 10 years. Yay, us! We brought up the Middle of the Pack! We averaged 4.7 mph on this 7.1 mile course, which is pretty fast for paddlers who are usually dawdling to see the wildlife and take pictures. It was fun being out there with all sorts of paddle craft. After seeing all of the “Flying Fish,” I’m dreaming of owning a racing stand up paddle board.
