Elk Lake Spring Regatta

This past weekend was the Elk Lake regatta in Victoria.  The Canadian training center usually enters a few boats into this regional regatta to show support for the community.  I wasn’t scheduled to race anything, but there was a last minute scratch by the U of Victoria crew in the men’s open double event so I put my name down and went to find a partner.  The only person who was game was Patricia Obee -a light weight woman training out of the center with us.  We ended up coming 4th out of 7… not too bad for a mixed crew in a men’s open event.  There’s not much footage of us in the video.  It splits between the men’s 8 event and the men’s double event.  We’re in 2nd furthest lane away from the camera at the start with a bit more footage of us at 3 mins in or so.  My teammates Fraser Berkhout and Mike Wilkinson won the event.  The pic to the left makes me look like a giant against Patricia’s small frame.
