The Great Cross Sound

Hosted By: Sound Rowers
  • Kathleen Faust
    • First place in the Female 1x OW-II (Maas Aero) event
    • From Kathleen, "The conditions were challenging and almost half of those registered were DNF. The combination of the strong ebb tide and winds created large waves and swells that hit constantly on the port side. I had to try to work with the waves, surfing them a bit down wind and then turning directly into the wind to correct course a bit. It was fun! At times, the waves were breaking over my shoulders and my boat was underwater for a few seconds. I did not feel in danger though, just challenged!" Congrats and thank you, Kathleen, for that exciting report!
