202 Rock the Pink Race
The 6th Annual ROCK the PINK, Breast Cancer Awareness race is in the bag. October 2nd trip to the start line was very WET!. THEN, the WIND decided to move to another state, or at least it was non existing at the start line. Boats drifted, bobbed, did unintentional 360's, fenders were out to avoid collisions, with the first boat sliding sideways across the start. Finally, 6 boats got across the start and the "RACE" was more like turtles on the beach than boats on the water. Out race czar radioed as he wisely shortened the course and we had an official finish.
First place was Oxbow, Andrew and crew were out front the whole race. Marty and the Hobgoblin crew beat out Mystic winds on the kerfuffle at the start and captured 2nd place. Mystic Winds pushed with Emily as her fearless leader and was rewarded with a 3rd place finish but they were the most colorful PINK Crew on the water. 4th place show was 2 Thumbs UP as it was nice to see Jim LeBlanc in the race.
This year Fund Raiser is going to the PINK DOOR. Donations can be made directly to the PINK DOOR. If every person on our Facebook page donate only $5.00 ea we can raise $2500.00 for this cause that helps women and men with their financial and medical needs.
