1st Green Race Training Lap

Every year I am always so fired up for the first long boat training lap on the Green. This year I was especially fired up because normally I have to do my first lap and shake off the cobwebs just a few days before the race, this year I got to do mine a whole month before. Although since then there has hardly been any days to do more training, it has helped being able to spend more time in a long boat than I normally would get before the race. This wasn’t the Sub 4 debut run I was looking for, but pulling out of the start line for the first time gets me every time. Now only a few weeks away, let’s hope I can get some more laps and clean up the lines!

Immersion Research K2 Union Suit – Review

Way back in 2013 Mark Mulrain kindly sent one of the new IR K2 Union Suits to try out along with the Royale spraydeck. As I get ready for some cold weather paddling tomorrow (Oct 2020) it is still the thermal I go to first if I am planning on wearing a drysuit.
