I love that there aren't many rules in this race, but one basic rule of a kayak race is that you have to cross the finish line with your kayak. I mean really. Sorry alex, I love you, but that shit doesn't count. You can't finish a bike race without your bike, a car race without your car, a motorcycle race without your motorcycle. If you swim, you should have to get back in your boat and cross the finish line, or even jump on top of it and cross. Even holding onto the grab loop while swimming across should count.
And next year, can you guys give us maybe a week notice? I really wanted to race but I didn't hear about it until the day before, and my family had other things going on. It was obvious a week ago that this would be the best flow time.
Just talkin shit. I'll be there next year if I hear about it ahead of time. Oh and using a long boat in a race where no one else has one is kind of cheating. 😎
