2000m Sprint

Tried to beat the storms today for 2km time trial training…made for a moody paddle 🙂 The good news is the water was super calm!

Using my best 2km time trial for today for the 2000m sprint. What an ugly distance!!! Will definitely keep working on this one over the month of August 🙂

Fastest Five at the Belle Isle Classic

Race number two of the weekend was the Belle Isle Classic in Detroit! Had a blast circumnavigating Belle Isle, especially the back side of the island with it’s terrifying “hold on and hope you don’t die” mix of current, wind and freighter wake! Even with some crazy conditions, the back side of the race produced some fast paced paddling! Maybe not Bow river fast, but probably the fastest conditions I’ll find around here 🙂

Canada Cup/ECSC

Had a blast at the Eastern Canadian SUP Championship this past weekend! This one was all about getting back on the lake, getting comfortable with other paddlers close by and being ready to deal with whatever conditions presented on the day! This was my first big “in-person” event since the start of Covid! I wasn’t crazy fast, but I definitely accomplished my goal!

Downwind

The Kawartha Paddle Quest was rocking yesterday, and it just so happens the first leg of this 50km race was a half decent downwind! This time is definitely better than my first attempt…I’ll take it 😉
