We ended up doing two races. The second race included the racing highlight of the weekend, when we edged past Leprechaun only several yards from the finish. YEAH!! Adventurous finished the regatta in 7th place overall (out of 10 boats) – not a bad showing for Ben’s first national regatta (and first season of racing, for that matter!)
Overall, it was an exhaustingly strenuous but overwhelmingly fun adventure. I am both honored and thankful that the Shremshocks invited me along to be part of their crew. All of my photos from the trip are stored at flickr. Have at them!
