Riverwalk Paddlesport Race 2017Posted by Bill & Paul's Sporthaus | 07.13.2017
RIVERWALK PADDLESPORT RACE
An amazing group of paddlers and near perfect weather helped define our 15th Annual Riverwalk Festival Paddlesport race. We welcomed back a few old friends, added some new racers from as far away as Norway, and had some family teams go out in canoes. Temps in the 70's with lot's of sun and a light wind from the north greeted the racers as they prepared for our NASCAR style start.
We again had a diverse field of boats, from Surfskis to Stand-up Paddleboards but the fan favorites this year were the two family teams in canoes. It's so exciting to see parents sharing an experience like this with the next generation of paddlers! In the end, Bill Morrow of Ada took first place in his Epic Surfski with a time of 31 minutes 40 seconds, but everyone walked away a winner in our raffle and we handed out 5 other trophies to the division winners.
