The River Connection Valley Rapier 20 racer paddled by Marshall Seddon

Don’t follow my example of a 20 mile big condition (4′ waves) rough water practice and try to make race performance.  More details later. Right now it’s time for an Ipswich Ale.

The River Connection Racer SPOT Tracker

I had my hands full most of the time, so no time to point and shoot photos, as 13 miles of the course was uphill or at least up wave.  3′-5′ waves were the norm.

Here are some pics, one from a shore photographer and the others from my Sony Action Cam on the rear deck

  1. Good grief, your boat’s under water in those wave photos! Deep respect. I would have whimpered and headed for shore.
