I know of a couple of other Watertriber-ers (www.watertribe.org) that are going but curious as to how many/any P-Netters are racing and in what classes?

See you on the water,

From the lack of responses I presume not many P-Netters were into a gorgeous day for and offshore race and paddling circus that is the Blackburn Challenge.

Did anyone participate and/or finish?

Compared to the cooker of last year. High in the mid/upper 70's slight breeze and overcast.

I got Bronze in men's Sea Kayak.

I think the tally was 399 racers total.

Celeb. Appearance by Oscar Chalupsky who raced in a tandem ski with Joe Glickman. Joe had a very moving speech at the awards ceremony as he's facing a major health battle. I should have recorded it.
