And that’s a wrap! With a finish time of 38.7 hours (2 hours better than our time last year), 70Forty-eight is officially over!
As we mentioned in our last post, the weather forecast for today was less than ideal. While the predicted thunder didn’t materialize, there were still storms to contend with. Heavy rain and wind made the trip rougher than we would have hoped for. While it certainly didn’t stop us, we did end up changing our paddle plan to ensure we remained close to land in case the weather turned on us. In the end, our path ended up looking like this:
Now that we’re done with this year’s paddle, it’s time for us to crack open a beer, plan how to add this year’s time to our SEVENTY48 tattoos, and of course… start training for next year’s race!
Look for more updates on our 70Forty-eight experience on social media and this blog in the future. But for now, take a look at these pictures from today’s paddle!
