If you want to get involved but, do not want to race there are several opportunities to help out. The Race Course needs several safety boaters. Paul Wolf will be at the helm of his motor boat at the half way point, but to prevent people from getting lost in the marsh and also assist with surf rescues on the front side, at least 5 kayakers are needed.
If you want to help out get in touch with Deb Kearney, the Marine Science Center or drop us a line. Alas, we will not be able to take part in this years event, only the 2nd time in 9 years. We normally defer business from this day because all our guides and ourselves are at the race. However, this year we will not be able to do this.
Good luck to all who take part. Over $15,000 was raised last year towards better education and preservation of our ocean environments.
