Saturday was another incredible day outdoors and thank you to everyone that came out and shared it with us. We took on a new venue at Faver-Dykes State Park, along the banks of Pellicer Creek, and it was a beautiful place to play.
 
Besides Faver-Dykes SP, the race also encountered the Pellicer Creek Conservation Area managed by St. Johns River Water Management District and a portion of the Matanzas State Forest managed by the Florida Forest Service.
 
The courses were designed by John and Craig Sheriff and once again they knocked it out of the park. Many racers came back with rave reviews. The Sheriff's also provided the cool LighterKnot wood trophies for the winners.
 

 
The Elite race was tight and exciting throughout. It started at sunrise and the racers launched canoes into misty Pellicer Creek soon after. There wasn't much separation between teams and that continued throughout.
 
Heading into the last Foot segment, the Canyoneros created a bit of a lead for themselves. The duo was looking for their first overall win together but were dealing with some major cramping issues. After leaving the transition area, the rest of the pack were all bunched and not far behind.
 
Everyone was cramping at this point but the race was on. Canyoneros shook it off were able to hold for a significant win. Congrats Hien and Nathan on the well deserved victory. Florida Xtreme/ Hunter motored on the last Foot section completing it fast than anyone which netted them a one second win over Mojitos on Monday.
 
Three more teams cleared it and were right with the pack. Newcomers Broccoli Covered Powder Babies continue to impress. Veteran teams Chunk and Coconutz are racing better than ever. The entire pack raced great and were having a great time throughout.
 
The Sport race had an energetic crowd with many first-timers and many familiar faces. There was a lot of ground to cover in the three-hour window which made clearing it difficult. Low-tide rolled in making Pellicer Creek a muddy mess at times as well. You could definitely tell who went after CP 6 because they were hip deep in the muck.
 
In the end, Team OCD cleared the course the course less than ten-minutes faster than Ménage à trois. Great job by both teams getting it all done. Front Runners finished fast left a Paddle point out there early on. Diavolo's and Special Ed also were one Paddle CP away from the clear.
 
Once again thanks to everyone who was involved with the 2014 LighterKnot AR. We love when the weather changes here in Florida and Autumn is always absolutely beautiful for racing. Feel good that you took advantage of that and hopefully we see you again.
