Paddle Training while Sailing?

We are so proud of Alan and Trey, sailing as Team Velocity in the Tybee 500 catamaran race this past week. With an awesome 2nd place finish in yesterdays leg, and a 5th place overall finish (first in the silver fleet who took penalties for not sailing the Jupiter Beach leg, and not for lack of trying). Only 7 of the original 13 boats even finished the race this year, with 2 dropping out during the last leg, a particularly hard (10-12 ft seas) and long leg (115 miles).

And, it even looks like Alan got in some training for the MR340 paddling race (July 24-28) during the sailboat race.

That's actually more than I've been getting in lately. Only 8 more weekends of training left. It's time I start putting in some real training miles in my Kruger.

Congratulations to your son and his team mate! From your descriptions of the race, I can't help but think many life lessons were gained during its progress!
