I would like to thank the race sponsors:
Paddleboards & Surfboards, Chipotle,
Bay Vacation Rentals, Xylo
I would also like to thank everyone

& drama that a Championship Race is all about.
Coming into the race many of the participants of the

Thank you to Cheance for once again organizing series.
And to all Race Organizers for all their hard work
in keeping the series going. I look forward to an
even bigger and better race next year.
A big thanks to Nancy, Beth, Annette, Avalon &
Kim for helping out during the day.
