Torrential rains, flood warnings, tornado watches, and wind gusts to 40+ mph. My Cuda 14 was, once again, ready for the challenge. Other than the weather factors the tournament was a huge success with all the proceeds going to two great cause; The Down Syndrome Association of Jacksonville and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. The fishing proved to be challenging as I was only able to hook and lose one flounder at the boat. That’s tournament fishing. Congratulations to Drew Gregory for not only placing in the Slam category but finishing fourth overall in the flounder category in close to brutal conditions. It was also great to see fellow Jackson Teammates Jameson Redding, Melita Ganoe, and Charlie Ganoe as well. Thanks to all the folks who helped put together an amazing tournament ! By the size of the gathering of participants and spectators at the Captain’s Meeting and weigh in ceremonies it was clear to see that the kayaking community is strong and growing !
Tight Lines !
