Jay Race

This past weekend I participated in the 7th Annual Jay Moriarity Memorial Paddle Race, held at New Brighton beach here in Santa Cruz. There were two divisions, a 12 mile and a 2 mile. Being fairly new to the paddle world, I did the 2 mile course. There was a huge turn out! I don't think I've ever seen so many different paddle boards - the 2 mile sprint was open to all types of boards: paddleboards, Standup Paddle Boards, people just on their surfboards paddling.

I didn't win any trophies or anything, but I did up my waterwoman status by finishing this race (and I wasn't last). For some reason my time was the only one that didn't get recorded when I went to look at the results! I was #46 and I finished in about 34 - 36 minutes. I finished with about 4-5 other people at the same time, perhaps thats where the confusion lay. Anyway, it was a good time and a good workout.

Correction: They found that they had recorded my time under a different number. My time was found and I finished the race at 0:32:04 - that puts me in 3rd place for the women's standup paddle division.
