Tims Ford Sailing and Paddling

This last month I have been alternating mountain biking with paddling my Kruger Sea Wind canoe on Tims Ford and Nickajack Lakes. Trusty dog Moki has joined me for many of the paddles.

This week I rigged the Balogh sail rig on the boat and added sailing to the paddling so that I will be prepared for the 2010 WaterTribe Everglades Challenge ( I haven't done it solo since 2003, but I have had several successful goes paddling a tandem Kruger canoe with a Balogh sail rig with Michael Collins (we won and set a record in 2004, then cut 5 hours off that time only to finish third in 2006.).

Pictures to come.
