Despite the rain, 14 racers came out to compete in the Vernon Paddling Centre’s small boat race this past Saturday.
Keith Major out of Peachland, on a surf ski, narrowly beat out Jeff Fink of Kelowna who was on his OC-1 on the 12 km course.
Leanne Stanley won the women’s division.
Several of these paddlers will be competing in the World Sprint Championships in Calgary in August.
Thanks to everyone coming out to a rainy day race and thanks to Donna and Ken for hosting the post-race BBQ.
