’24 Stan Cann & Gorge Race

It built into blustery afternoon day for the San Cann race in Hilo. Fortunately the morning hours weren’t quite as robust as long course and short course paddlers took off and the high school regatta was getting underway.

We had some strong paddlers on both long and short courses and it seems everyone is getting faster. Results are listed in order of finish times.
