Siska's January 2021 General Meeting Info
by Fred Pishalski
Please come join us by Zoom on January 27, 2021 for our first SISKA monthly meeting of 2021. Our speakers will be Ian Graeme and Janice Mason (Team Oaracle) and they will share their adventure story of competing multiple times in the Race to Alaska (R2AK). They will share a few stories and learnings from their five years of participating in the race by different means kayaking, rowing and sailingand what keeps drawing them back.
The Race to Alaska is a 1200 km, non-motorized, unsupported boat race along the spectacular and remote BC coast from Port Townsend, WA (stop in Victoria BC) to Ketchikan, AK. The rules are simple. No motor, no support, through wild frontier, navigating by sail or peddle/paddle for the full distance
Janice Mason is an Olympian, world champion rower, mother and physician. Ian Graeme is a forester, avid outdoorsman, paddler and sailor. After completing the Race to Alaska on different sailboats in 2015 and 2016, Ian and Janice joined forces in 2017 as Team Oaracle, to become the first team to complete R2AK by oar power alone (tandem rowboat). And if that wasnt a big enough relationship test, they returned in 2018 to complete the race facing forwards, in their tandem kayak. https://r2ak.com/2020-teams-full-race/team-oaracle-4
