I realize now that I left out an important fact about Paul and Alan's Pamlico Challenge Watertribe race on board Dawn Patrol. Paul was much too modest to mention it in his race report, but I should have checked the race results. They came in first place with a finish time of 3 days, 8 hours and 45 minutes, finishing 2 hours and 12 minutes ahead of second place. Well done!
I look at the track to find myself amazed and envious for the 47 nautical mile sail up Pamlico Sound. Very cool.
And to the north Kristen, aka Kiwibird, tells me she won a blue ribbon in the women's kayak race at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum's Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival.
Surrounded by water at St. Michaels, I think Kristen is spending a fair amount of time out in her kayak. The watertribe better watch out for next year.
