Rivanna River Race, May 11, 2013

One rainy week passed and as a result the rivers were up the following weekend for my local Rivanna River race in Charlottesville.

Since the water was high I decided to paddle the Cobra Viper because I had established that it excels in deeper water when there is little chance of hitting rocks.

I gave it all I had for most of the race and was rewarded with a first place victory, covering a distance of 6.2 miles in 46 minutes and 29 seconds.  A race record that stands to this day.

It felt great to finally win my local race.
