The Ladies at Jamie’s Race

As mentioned in our previous post – the Quicksilver Watermen’s Festival was a tremendous success on all levels. From the opening 5 mile and 1 mile races to the exciting Survivor series- the full day of racing went by in a blink of an eye.

Of all the races over the weekend none was more anticipated then the stacked women’s field that featured names like Candice Appleby, Terrene Black, Annabel Anderson, Shae Foudy and Talia Decoite.

It was Shae’s day, she took out the first survivor heat and it was a battle from then on out between herself, Annabel, Candice and Terrene. In an action packed day we could not be more proud of our team of strong women and give a giant, virtual, “high five” to Shae Foudy on an epic performance in some pretty tough conditions.

Candice – VDrive 101

Terrene – Trifecta 86

Lexi Alston – Matchstick / Vector Net – V Drive 91

Bailey Rosen – VDrive 81

Talia Decoite – VDrive 81

Unlike our men who overwhelmingly choose the Trifecta for this race- the women seem to prefer the V Drive. Terrene was our only Trifecta user. Still, feels nice to know that 5 of the 9 top women chose a Quickblade paddle.
