Paddling up the Right Creek

Enthusiast organizing 101-mile lake kayak race

(Continued)

Burnside —

"When I came to Lake Cumberland, I bought my first flat water kayak in 1996; a 20’ Chesapeake Lightcraft which I paddle all the time. I took to flat water racing in 1998 and was very competitive.
"Due to an injury, I stopped racing and turned my efforts to kayak fishing. Though it is exciting to catch fish from a kayak, I find the thrill and excitement from a long distance race or even fast sprints. I have traveled to many venues to race or just take part in a paddlefest but I can’t help thinking that Lake Cumberland’s 101 miles is very perfect to host Kentucky’s first kayak/canoe distance race."
