Spring Sprints, Lake Merritt, May 20, 2018

It was a blustery Sunday on Lake Merritt in Oakland, but spirits were high when we fielded two teams for our first race of the year hosted by our friends the Oakland Renegades. Here’s a picture of our novice boat setting off for the first race of the day.

Venice Dates


Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, A tale of a distant trip, That’s starting from a Venice port, Aboard their tiny ship, aboard their tiny ship.

Corinne and Scott put together the crew, Coach Dan has made them strong, For months they practiced and prepard themselves, For a trip 5 hours long, a trip 5 hours long.

The start is from the Grand Canal, With water and food to snack, If not for the strength of the entire crew, They’d never make it back, they’d never make it back.

They came together from far and near,  To paddle for 17 miles, With ADF, and Portland, too, And also…Australia, One from BAD, A country up north called Canada, Paddling the Vogalonga!
