Championship race! We took the gold in our division. 3rd boat overall but not far behind the first two. We were very happy and our coach was super proud of us. We went out into the ocean for a bit and the swells were pretty big, but we did well in it. One of our "engine room" paddlers was feeling sick and her back was hurting, so that's pretty awesome that she hung in there and we had such a great result anyway.

Short practice before the championship race saturday. We were supposed to practice popping the ama and then recovering at the end. Instead, we couldn't pop the ama and then over-did it and ended up flipping the boat! Ha! It was funny, and we got to practice hull recovery.
