One more day

We spent last night getting packed for the race tomorrow. Theoretically we have everything except food and water. As expected we were up a little bit late trying to sort stuff out. But that’s why we did it yesterday rather than today. Today we plan to go to bed early.

We headed down to Charles River Canoe and Kayak to rent a winged paddle for Tyson for the race. They are generally accepted to be faster than normal paddles. But mostly when Tyson borrowed one last weekend, he felt that it improved his form. On the way driving down I95 we saw all sorts of spiffy kayaks going the other way. I expect they were all headed up towards Gloucester where we’ll see them tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Mom and Dad showed up at my place. While waiting for us to show up, Mom decided to be awesome and cook us dinner.

Check out our last training session to the Isles of Shoals.

Race results tomorrow.
