Competition Results: Intracrew and Taplin 2009

Dateline: July 31 - August 2, 2009

The sand and salt spray has settled and at the end of it all:

Venice wins the Intercrew Relay for the second year in a row !


Central Section, Team A wins the Taplin Relay for the second year in a row !

(Photo below shows two Central Section Taplin Competitors getting pumped up before the main event !

The foundation for both of these wins are the solid and experienced dory crews for both the Venice and Central Section Teams. If the dorys do not do their job, the lead established by the blazingly fast swimmers and paddlers would have been for naught !

So here ya go, for the record:
