Bend Oregon Outrigger (BOO) kicked off the 2014 season with the Rusty Iron Race. Race venue was Frenchman’s Bar Park in Washington on Saturday, April 26th. It was a full day of racing with Mixed and Open Women’s crews racing at 10am, Men’s crews racing at noon, and the Short course crews closing the day at 2pm.

BOO fielded 3 race crews. The Mixed crew placed 3rd overall for the 10am, 8 mile, Long Course race and 2nd in the Open Mixed Division. BOO entered 2 crews for the 4 mile, short course race. The crews, consisting mostly of Novice paddlers, did a terrific job placing 2nd and 3rd in their overall.
