The 26th annual Oar and Paddle regatta sponsored by Island Spirit Kayak brought watercraft of all kinds — kayaks, canoes, stand up paddleboards, and one pilot dinghy—  to Sengekontacket Pond on Saturday. Eighty-three contestants of all ages dipped oars in the water for a two-mile paddle on a beautiful summer day, with two swimmers joining along in the action. Dana Gaines crossed the finish line first in his single kayak with a time of 23:02, and Pam Browning was the first woman to finish, paddling across the finish line in her single kayak at 25:19. Adrian Johnson finished first in the stand up paddleboard division with a time of 27:13. Some completed with the race with good luck charms on board: Charles Williams and Bridget Dunnigan finished third in the double kayak category along with their two dogs, both cancer survivors. Complete results are available online.

26th Annual Island Spirit Oar & Paddle Regatta The 26th Annual Oar & Paddle was an amazing success! The water was flat glass and perfect conditions for the 2.45 mile course starting in Sengekontacket Pond, through Big Bridge and finishing at The Little Bridge, ocean side off State Beach. The pond was at low tide, so the times were a little slower than in the past, but the race was just as intense. Dana Gaines wins again, but had a tight finish for him with Brian Beasley, a guide for Island Spirit Kayak, only 1:13 behind, which is a shorter gap than Dana is used to, so he'd better watch out next year. Pam Browning, used to live on the Vineyard and came back to take 4th place overall with an outstanding time of: 25:19. Another hand crafted cedar strip Greenland style kayak built by Randy Durbin graced the water in this years regatta, bringing his fleet to three. All three of Randy’s home built kayaks placed in the top 15. Charles Williams and Bridget Dunnigan w/ dogs Hogan & Mullet are well decorated paddlers of the Regatta, both dogs are cancer survivors. Two swimmers, Beth May Goodell and Matt Coffey absolutely crushed the course. The race is a sposored event by Island Spirit Kayak, in which they donate their entire fleet for the day to paddle for cleaner waters! All profits raised are donated to Friends of Sengekontacket.
