We will be tracking Ed, Rubber Duckie and Paul Morison via satellite. if you click on the screenshot of the map you will see exactly where they are on the race course as they circumnavigate Cape Ann.
The screenshot below was taken at 6:08 when they boys arrived at the starting line at Gloucester High School. If you click the picture it will show you a refreshed map of exactly where they are as the day progresses.
Ed Collard talking pretty confidently in his interview here but I think we all know he is secretly hoping for the race to be called early due to heat, LOL! I will say this-
If Ed Collard does indeed complete the Blackburn Challenge after only 5 times being in a Kayak I’ll be convinced he can do anything.
A note to all Blackburn Challenger Competitors and their families-
Swing down the dock after the race to get a free Good Morning Gloucester Sticker and have your picture taken for these pages Representing!
