    There won't be any other craft on that starting line that can even come close to the grace and style of Ziska.

    Just bounced onto this thread Mark. Tell us more about this handsome vintage Zizka! I've scanned the roster for the R2AK race and I'm glad to see a good variety of boats racing this year. Hopefully you've got some muscle on board to row Ziska through the narrows. She looks just a bit heavy, but I would rather be on a handsome wooden sailing vessel than a trimaran or rowboat ANY day of the week.

    Wishing your crew all the best. Enjoy the adventure!

    Hi Joseph,
    This isn't my boat, but I've seen posts on Facebook and the restoration is amazing.

    That's definitely a long course for a SUP paddler. The race organizers will need to keep a close eye on them. They are more vulnerable than most paddlers.
