August 30Fanatic Returns
Fanatic is already producing the new Ray board which is again the official one-design board of the event. All participants in the Fanatic One-Design class use the 12' x 32" Ray which is ideal for the races we run during the HIHO week. The Ray is stable and manageable to paddle whether you are large or petite. It's a great all-around board and is made with bespoke graphics for the event, including all the event sponsor logos.
Inaugural Painkiller Cup
The Painkiller Cup on July 6 was a wild success. The race, a team event for three competitors one of which had to be a women, featured a start of Trellis Bay on Beef island and a finish 13-miles downwind at the Soggy Dollar Beach Bar on Jost Van Dyke. The Fanatic Team of Chase Kosterlitz, Belar Diaz and Sarah Bryne took an easy win. Second went to the St Thomas Team of Colin Butler and Eric and Gail Walker. Team Antigua (Shannon Falcone, Nik Bohachevsky & Joy Chien) squeaked in for 3rd.
Fanatic Joins HIHO
Fanatic joins Highland Spring HIHO as the official SUP board supplier. The new Fanatic Ray 12' will be the board in the new Fanatic One Design class. Limited edition custom graphics depicting a map of the BVI's and the event sponsor logos will be incorporated into the board design. The Ray is an ideal board for a week of island-to-island down-wind paddling through the BVI's. "Joining this re-known event is great," said Fanatic boss Craig Gertenbach. "We are excited to participate and plan to send some of our Fanatic team to race."
