Dan River Boat Race

Every year, the town of Madison, NC hosts the Dan River Boat Race. Its a fun family event late in the summer where about 150 teams race canoes and kayaks down the Dan River. I’ve blogged about our participation before, but I forgot to this year, so here’s the highlights:

This is Kevin’s third year racing with John in the men’s tandem canoe class, and my second year racing with Anna in the women’s tandem canoe. Anna and I won the class this year:), while Kevin and John failed to defend their second place title:) Bleu and his dad John won the class, despite this being their first year racing together. As you can see from the picture above, the weather turned stormy about halfway through the race. The clouds let go and it absolutely poured that afternoon and rained out the awards ceremony, which had to be moved inside to the rec center. It was worth waiting, however, so that Anna and I could claim our new first place title:)
