Big thanks to the volunteers. George from Onshore Surf Shop deserves a medal. Was injured trying to get the buoys out. Good post race food, and place for awards- shaded with chairs!!

Another great race for you! You are really doing fantastic in your first season. It is always hard to get a good rythym in the choppy ocean water.
