Here is a great pic from the start at Scusset Beach and a cool one showing the finish area and venue (white tent).  22.4 miles in 7.5-hours.  Wind at our backs the whole time.  We could have done it in 6 hours (or better) but we needed to make sure family & friends could see us land in Duxbury so we took some extended breaks and had a really nice day on the water.

The hope is Duxbury Beach Reservation and Blakemans will have us back next year as it is an A+ venue.   
Whatever floats me

Wow, 22 mile downbreezer, with sunshine (and a much more civilized start time!  ;D) sounds awesome! This may lure me back for next year's event. Congrats on another successful CCBC!

Really nice pictures Chaser!
That does look like a nice venue.

The new route and wind option should put this on the map for more paddlers in coming years.
I'd like to see that  :)

Stoney:  VERY VERY cool!!!!!  Really enjoyed that!  Impressive flotilla of support boats too!

And beautiful pics!

I was a few miles south routing on a couple of other Zoners in another race which was a first for me to experience.  Everyone was incredibly supportive to all ages and abilities and that also came shining thru in your video.....no bashing, no BS, just fun and love for sharing time together enjoying Mother Ocean.

Nicely done and congrats to all who participated in the event.

Hope to see ya soon,  8)
