in a time of 7:57:14. Roger Mann became the first paddler to finish the race on a
stand-up paddleboard. In the 26 mile marathon, Brint Adams defended his title and

  1. Awesome write up Roger, I only saw two gators the whole trip, I’m kinda glad I coudn’t see into the water from you’re vantage point, it would’ve freaked me out too. Not knowing how many gators I paddled over is fine with me. I think I saw that same dude, although he hadn’t started bathing yet. My finish time was at 8:06 so you were only 30 minutes behind me. A real accomplishment man, congratulations. Did that pic you took of me come out? Later.
