Duct Tape Kayak Completes 2012 NSRWA Great River Race!

Posted by on August 23, 2012

The Duct Tape Kayak, powered by our very own Alex Russo, completed the 2012 NSRWA Great River Race! It took a little over 90 minutes (winning time was 64 minutes) to traverse the near 7-mile course. Despite rain and bow-heavy trim, Alex was able to power to a glorious finish. The Duct Tape Kayak also took home the “best in show” award!


The Duct Tape Kayak was a big hit and received a lot of attention from participants and the local media. Read more and view pictures at the following links:

Best of all,  we were able to raise another $150.00 for Stand Up 2 Cancer! A special thanks to Jack and Nanci Lamarre for their very generous donation. We’re now within sight of our fundraising goal but we won’t make it without your help and support. Check back soon for our updated schedule of events including our second race of the year where the revamped Duct Tape Kayak is sure to perform better than ever!
