Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who came out yesterday for the Rivanna River Regatta Canoe & Kayak Races.

We apologize for the seeming lack of coordination at the beginning of the afternoon flat water events, but the morning downriver race ran a bit longer than anticipated and by the time the crew got to the reservoir, many kayakers were already on the water and had dispersed.  By our count and calculation, (and thanks to the Charlottesville Outdoor Adventure Club for being on the water at a different part of the reservoir at the same time), the established record for the highest number of canoes and kayaks on the S. Rivana Reservoir at the same time now stands at 29.  This is certainly a low bar that can be easily exceeded next year.

Please give us feedback in the forum where we've started a topic thread for 2012 Regatta Feedback.

Results will be posted soon.
