The weekend brought steady progress for many boats. Two more boats crossed the finish line yesterday, bringing the total in Ketchikan to 5. That leaves 23 boats still out there including all under 20 foot boats.
For the small boats, Team Discovery is still in the lead and if he makes it, which barring a mishap, he surely will, it’ll be the second time Roger Mann is the first boat under 20 feet to reach the finish line. Did we also mention that he holds the speed record for fastest solo completion of the R2AK. Hard core. Which is definitely how one would describe the second place small boat in the race, the SUP Heart of Gold. Incredibly Karl Kruger has almost reached Bella Bella. Much of the difficult terrain is now behind him and barring an injury or mishap, he stands a good chance of not only completing the R2AK but doing it in an astonishingly fast time. Go R2AK racers go!
