Dozens of competitive and recreational kayakers and paddle boarders brought their vessels to Lynn Gripon Countryside Park for a 4.7 mile race on Clear Creek.

More than 40 contestants took part in the discreet race at the park along the banks of Clear Creek. Spectators were on hand to cheer on their friends and family.

Personal kayaks, metal canoes and paddle boards were used in the recreational race for beginners while professional kayaks took off in the competitive race.

Tommy Yonley placed first in the competitive race with his brother, Jonathan Yonley, following closely behind.
