Infinity @ the Silver Blade Regatta (olympic trials)

We headed down to Chula Vista last weekend to attend the Silver Blade Regatta which was held at the Olympic Training Center. This is the first time SUP has been invited to compete at the center and is the first steps in getting SUP racing into the Olympics!

Was a fun event with a 200m sprint, 2000m distance, and a 200m team relay. The races were held in lanes and you had attendants holding on to the tail of your SUP at the beginning of the race to ensure no "false" starts. The finish also had a photo finish feature to reference back on close battles to the finish line!

All in all a really fun event and great venue. Was fun getting in the mix with all the other canoe, kayak, C1, Olympic hopefulls.

Infinity's Alleana Clark took 1st Place in 14 and under Girls while Infinity's Jayson Campbell too 1st in the 14 and under boys as well... Nice job guys!
