Fagers Island Surf Swap
As always, Dawn Ehman put on a first class event in Ocean City, MD this past weekend. Lots of people made the trip and participated in this 5 mile or 2.5 mile race. The weather was typical Ocean City with the wind kicking out of the NE, but we got lucky as most of the course was protected. We even had a nice downwind section and only a short cross-chop section. That cross-chop section knocked a lot of people in the drink though-haha.
When the race started Goose (Annapolis) and Terry Kent from NY got out early and stayed out front as Goose took 2nd. Mark Nelson (Berlin) and Steven O’Boyle (OC) where not far behind. Then, Jeff Cook (Edgewater) and Neil Macindoe (Annapolis) were battling it out again with Jeff just edging him out. There were so many good battles out there on the course, April Z (Wrightsville Beach) was the first female across the line and she kicked ASS. Kathy Summers (DC) was right behind her followed by Corrine Banks (OC).
BOW round 2 also happened at this race. Keane vs Everhart, East vs West!! The BOW deserves it’s own post though so that will be coming up soon.
Dawn always has the best swag bags and prizes out of any other races in MD. Fagers is such a cool atmosphere as well, if you have never been to this race you want to mark it on your calendar for next year!! There is also another race here in August, check the MD SUP calendar for more info.
