Mahalo to Mountain Home Outrigger Canoe Club to hosting a challenging race. What a fantastic day to be out on the water. It was fun for all who participated in the event even if we got a little wet from the rain. The day started off warm and dry but Mother Nature decided to gave us a nice shower to start the race.
Both crews did a great job and finished in the top three for the Novice Mixed crews. The crews and results are below:
2nd place – CROCC Novice Crew 1 ( Jeanne, An, Josh, Adam, Jeanelle, and Doug) – 1 hr 22 min 22 sec
