Go Sandy!
This is your brain
And this is brain paddling with KPC!
Going organic
Yes we collected a social distance circle!
All this and a $ donation!!
Now that’s balance
Easy does it!
Yes they were both totally trashed!
Double doubles!
Can you name this famous singer musician?
Looking good!
Racers get it too!
Finding out no mask means no kayaking…bummer!

As always were only as good as our volunteers so that makes us…


Just like our volunteers!


Check out all the pics and hope to see you on the water!
