I went to Squalicum Park to watch the handoff from the mountain bikers to the kayakers and took a few pictures. It was very windy and the kayak section of the race got called off toward the end because too many kayakers were getting dumped in the bay due to the wind.

There were 500 teams this year, and more were on the waiting list.  It was great. Wish I could have been in it instead of on the sidelines!
