Three crews, three medals! TCOCC had a great showing at Rooster Rock this weekend. The day started cool and overcast for the short course. Our mixed open crew put down a strong start, and mixed it it up with the unlimited canoes through the first turn downriver. After that it was a battle with Hood River Outrigger to get through the final turn and through the finish line for a first place finish.
For the mixed race we had both masters and open crew out on the course. The temps warmed up and the sun came out making for a sticky 10 mile run up and around the rock. Both crews were out near the front of the pack and our mixed masters came across the line second overall with a first place in their division. Our mixed open crew also had a strong third place showing in a crowded division of 9 crews.
Overall it was a great day for TCOCC. Having 18 paddlers representing the club at a race is a big accomplishment for us and a great sign for the future. Bringing home some hardware is icing on the cake. See the gallery below for some pictures of the day.
