D. R. 2017, Richard "Dick" Ryder Race

February 4, 2017....
The D. R. 2017 is the 2nd annual long distance wake riding event designed for teams paddling OC1's and Surfski's

Teams of Two ride their powerboat wake as fast as they can over an 8 mile course, and finish with a short sprint to the finish.  Racers are open to all sorts of mayhem and disruption;  (short of boat damage, or littering in the ocean) but the first pair to cross the finish line will be declared the winner.   Other special awards will be given this year, and of course a short party will follow the race. 

Past participants say that this is the "Funnest race ever"
