Congrats to Brett Saguid of Spokane, WA for his first place finish among 197 competitors. Brett was on an unlimited board and his winning time was 2 hr, 7 min, 16 sec!
Lina Augaitis of Vancouver, BC repeats her first place finish for the women and 8th overall with a blazing time of 2 hr, 18 min, 20 sec! She also did this on a 14 foot board.
It should be noted that Canadian Shannon Bell was second overall for the women and beat the men’s field in the Stock (12’6″) Class.
Renick Woods of Seattle finished first on a 14 foot board with a time of 40 min, 6 sec (after completing the morning’s 13 mile race)!
Betsy Risner of Francis, UT was first for the women (and 5th overall) with a winning time of 43 min, 36 sec.
This year’s race was actually a little longer than previous years, as the turn buoy drifted before the race start.
Congrats to everyone who participated. The field was extremely fast with conditions almost perfect!
We also want to give a big “Thank You” to all of the safety boaters and race day volunteers. Without the participation of many of their members as volunteer safety vessels, we would not be able to conduct our annual event.
