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

Blog2014GreenLake3Our thanks to Hui Wa‘a o Waikinikona for such a wonderful day of sprint racing out on Green Lake. Our paddlers had a great time getting out there on the water and competing with the all the clubs. Even thought we didn’t always have full CROCC crew padding we were able to get all paddlers out there who wanted to race with other teams. Big Mahalo to Alex Rohr for jumping in and representing CROCC with the other youth teams from Kikaha o Ke Kai and Hui Heihei Wa‘a. Also we would like to congratulate Cris on her V1 race though it was a hull finish with a first place win, great way to stick the dismount (Wicked Grin)!

What a great day to be out at Alki beach! No one could have asked for better weather and water conditions. Mahalo to Seattle Outrigger Canoe Club for hosting a great race and providing a wonderful race shirt designed by Kendal Sparks.

The CROCC Mixed Masters crew was up against Waikinikona Mixed Open in the end and from the looks of it there was a photo finish. Though CROCC lost in the end by a fraction of a second they did take first in their division!

The SOCC/CROCC Open Men’s crew also ended their race with a very close race with Wasabi. In the last few miles of the race the Wasabi Steersman lost his blade, but the SOCC/CROCC crew was able to pick it up and get it back to them via the race official (Tim). Once Wasabi had their steers-blade back the race was on! Again, it was a tight finish with Wasabi taking the Third place slot by a fraction of a second.

Great Job Crew!

Gorge Distance Race – Results

What a race! I keep thinking to myself, “WOW, there was some WICKED water out there!” The mighty Columbia once again reminded us not to take her for granted and humbled a great many teams. Quite a few of the team never finished the race due to the morning conditions. It was definitely a character-building race and a reminder to respect the water. Thankfully it’s was a beautiful day in the gorge, with big water and an unscheduled swim for several crews. Over 1/3 of the crews never finished the race, ours included.

Mahalo to JD adn David Chun along wth all the other escort boats out there keeping us safe. The race wouldn’t happen without them!

Cheers to all of the paddlers that were out there! I can’t wait to hear your individual stories that come out of it!!
