After a week or so of reflection on the trip and the race, all that comes to mind is what a great race this is. Even though for the 3rd run in a row, the wind decided not to blow, the channel stills attracts the best in the world to give it a go. I want to say congratulations to Hank Mcgregor and Katie Popcock...what incredible performances. Fun to see Katie win it. I also want to mention that although I saw mostly the parking lot and the trailer while loading up skis, how lucky we are to have so many kind paddlers helping us out. Without our friends in Hawaii, it would be impossible to have the Fenn skis available there for the Aussies, Canadians, Tahitians and mainland paddlers. We are not a huge company, rather just me and Patrick. So thanks to everyone who lended a helping hand.
Until next year, aloha!!
Pat finishing in 20th place, well done!
