Around Naples Island Time Trial

April 26, 2009

Today, LARD set the first bench mark for the newly crowned “Around Naples Island Time Trial.”

LARD went around the island in 21 min, 30 seconds with 17 paddlers, a coach and a steersman.  LARD also had a 10 man boat with 8 paddlers and a steersman complete the same time trial in the same time (21:30).

Here are the rules:

1.  You can use any boat (LARD was in Boat 7) and have up to 20 paddlers on the boat.

2.  Start at the 1st floating buoy after the E. Appian Way Bridge.

3.  Head counter-clockwise around the island staying to the right of all large buoys (no corner cutting).

4.  You can switch sides during the piece.

5.  Finish line is the beginning of 2nd Street Bridge by the Boy Scout lot.

I don’t think this benchmark will last very long as there were a few empty seats and we were not in Mother’s Beach’s fastest dragon boat.

Have at it Long Beach!  Let me know your team’s time and I’ll post it.

Good luck!

For those of you that missed it, here’s a bit of video.

UPDATE: youtube decided to remove the  D12 song I had playing on the video because I am making SOOO much money off this video.  Thanks, youtube!
