I actually beat Robbie for the Masters 40+ men’s by 2 points.
Only because I did 6 races and he did 5. I had 26 points and he had 24.

Thank you Beau! It’s Minnie! 🙂 Good thing my other sister Mina doesn’t paddle or you’d have to call us by M1, M2, and M3 like my Dad! Congrats on your OC1 racing season accomplishments too!

Thank you so much CORA! I will always remember how kind, inviting and encouraging Peter was from the first time I met him. I’m happy I won this doing something I enjoy!

2 things:
1) I shouldn’t do math and/or type when there’s whiskey onboard.
2) I should know better to think I can beat Robbie.
