This is a video of Anthony, one of our blind paddlers, doing his very first water change in practice. When we race to Catalina we have 9 people on a 6 person race team. We drop 3 people in the water and do moving water changes to keep the canoe going while we exchange relay paddlers. For Makapo, we have been stopping the boat completely and guiding them into the boat. This year Makapo paddlers have decided they are ready to step it up. So cool. So much trust to jump into the ocean in the middle of the Catalina channel and know your teammates will be there to pick you up.
