MS State Games

Mississippi State Games Kayak Races were held in Bernard Bayou in the far upper end of Biloxi Bay. Hot and humid today.

Participants launched on a sandy beach at The Dock Gulfport. 

There had to have been more Stand Up Paddlers (SUPs) racing than kayakers.

I raced in the 1-mile sprint and the longer 6-mile race winning both in my division. Here are the nice medal ribbon awards.

How can I race a kayak in the Mississippi State Games even though I live in Alabama? Alabama State Games has no kayak races so Mississippi allows people from Alabama to participate in their State Game kayak races. Alabama Sucks.
