Rowing Races in 'Cranky' Boats

If you paddle it isn't very long before you're racing. Even solo paddlers race against themselves! People who row are the same. I know of at least two traditional rowing races held on the east coast each summer. One goes back a long way to the fishing rivalry between Lunenburg, Nova Scotia and Gloucester, Massachusetts. Now known as the 'International Dory Race', this year's event is held on June 20th in Gloucester.

A month later another rowing race, this time in Newfoundland fishing punts, will continue from Fogo Island to the Chance Islands and back. This is a tough 16 kms race on the open ocean and not for the feint-of-heart! Recently a documentary video was made showing some of the contestants as they prepared for and took part in a recent race. Check out the trailer from the video called 'Cranky'and see if you're ready to race! If you are, this year's Fogo Island Regatta race is set to go on July 28!

Yes, we know what you mean. We often do a circuit, launching from near where we live on the Island. What is it about the urge to do the loop faster each time!? I guess 'cause it affirms we're still getting better! Smile. Glad to find your blog.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
It gets down to select a correct companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
