Before the first race. The teams and paddlers have been a part of and listened to the blessing. The ladies out of the beach as the sun rises. .
Townsville. the day shapes up reasonable in the early hour and turns on the paddlers later in the day to become a challenging tough course, but a lot fun on the OC1's and 2"s.
Every race is different and the teams that shine are the ones that have done the work and can maintain momentum through the tougher waters. .
It may look easy. As any skill in any sport or discipline, the graceful, effortless and controlled performers are working deep inside and channelling that energy where it counts. #xylobladz
