I guess I’m a bit late, I hope you had a successful paddle and that the event raised both awareness and significant cash.

Thanks for all the well wishes. We made it!

7.5 hours, 27.5 miles according to the boat GPS (I didn’t account for the long curve the incoming tide would force upon us) . Conditions weren’t quite as good as forecast but not bad. We had a great time. Lots of laughs. Already looking forward to next year.

The final total isn’t in yet but we will raise somewhere in the neighborhood of $11,000

Here are some pics.

Time to start building some paddles…:)
