Default Photos - 2013 Orange Bowl Paddleboard Championship - Part II

Just after the start of the Men's Elite race, charging down the canal out of the marina.

Helga and Mary Anne battling it out, as usual!

Then all those paddlers hit the Bay and stretch way off to the south. A crowd on the water!

Following PART I of the photos from the race, we go into Part II ...

Just before the start of the Recreational race. Although the Elite and Recreational races were run separately, images from each will be intermixed throughout this writeup.

The Elite race extended into the Miami River

Water and watercraft everywhere

Māori in these waters.

A dramatic race setting and a fun one to shoot!

Approaching the mark in the Miami River

MAB stretches out her stroke to move ahead.

Packet goes around for the last leg back to the marina.

Danny Chang heads out to the Bay to go hard to the finish line.

The Recreational racers ease into the Miami River and around the island to loop back north to the finish.

Annette running south to round the island.

Catherine is focused.

The Recreational racers approach the bridge which they will have to pass knelling or prone.

Many symbols in this race to a lot of people.

Racing back to the start/finish line in the marina

Helga moves to the finish.

Paula paddles in to the last stretch before the finish.

Charging the finish!

Made it and feeling a bit knackered!

The results of the race are at the following links:

Elite Race
Recreational Race

Well done to one and all, particularly to the organizers and sponsors!

The BBBS kids got to go out for a paddle following the Elite and Recreational Races.

The Miami Heat Dancers came down to join in the fun but I missed their act. Was off on a boat somewhere.

Start them young, it is a good sport to grow into.

SUP will keep you in excellent shape and spirits!

Paula and Maui wind down with a paddle

Taking it easy, for now. The sprint races are coming up along with the closing ceremonies. Unfortunately, I had to grab Dr. Laura and book up north to the kids. There are lots of great images of these events on Facebook, It was fun, see you next year and thanks!!!
