FrontRower Survives World's Toughest Boat Race
Texas Water Safari 2012
The Texas Water Safari is a grueling race that starts in central Texas and finished in the Gulf of Mexico. It is 260 miles long in the blistering heat and it is considered to be the world's toughest boat race. Simply finishing gives you bragging rights.
Bill Seirsdorfer got off to a slow start with his FrontRower powered canoe because he had to single paddle in the early part of the race through log jams, narrow passages and portages. But he says he gained 30 places when he got to more open water where he could row. Bill finished in 85 hours and 2 minutes (and that includes sleep time). Finishing 70th out of 139 starters of all classes, that's pretty good for his first time in this race.
