Competitive fun and great weather combined to make the Kayak Races & Kids Triathlon a winner. The events took place at the Clark Lake Yacht Club and were also sponsored by the Raft-O-Rama committee.
The first events of the day were the kayak races and the kids took to the course first. They started from the Yacht Club docks, headed towards Eagle Point, rounded a buoy, and returned to the Yacht Club.
Next the adults took to the water, while the kids assembled for their next event–the Triathlon. Below, be sure to click on the image to boost size and then click on the right side of the photo to move to the next photo.
