My daughter Phoebe (shades and I had a great time racing at the Farmington Slalom last weekend. A big thank you to everyone who helped make it happen; it was a great event.

Here is the video of our second run. We shaved 20 seconds off our first run time, but hit two additional gates, so it was a wash. Keep in mind that we're paddling a 16' 6" Old Town Penobscot canoe, so we're pretty slow especially in the turns. Still, the video does give you nice long look at the course . . . plus you get commentary.

Loved Phoebe's running commentary!!!

Eric, it was great watching you and Phoebe on the water - that was a lot of boat to get through the Farmington course!

Loved Phoebe's jogging commentary!!!
Eric, it was wonderful watching an individual and also Phoebe for the drinking water -- that had been a lot of vessel to obtain from the Farmington training course!
