    LB2Cat - Finnish the K38 Shawn Alladio Way

    So her steering column completely snaps off at the turn coming toward the finish line - she's tossed very hard, when a normal person would be done for the day waiting for a DNF tow in. Nope Hell Woman gets back on her ski uses her body weight to steer and somehow working the throttle and crosses the finish line. Does she take the tow? Of course not ...then lays down on the back of the ski steering by the nozzle with one hand while working the throttle on the bars laying toward the foot well over a mile back to dock My God this is why she is a Hall of Fame racer

    Some pics and the video of the ride back to dock

    Shawn again you prove that it is not the gender but the heart and determination that will prevail. You don't have to win or stand on the podium to be a winner. You are a winner in my book. You are an inspiration to us all. Again thanks for the encouraging words to Pam this year. hey it was good for me to.
    Best to you.
    John

    Oh wow, that vid is crazy, thanks for sharing that! ...that was right when RXTUSMC came alongside after Mark G was checking in on me... I found out with these more powerful boats it is not so easy to steer with the steering nozzle, I learned a new technique. I attribute this to a lot of time underway and my racing background and as a responder on the track. I kinda knew what to do next, as I usually do it for a racer, this time I simply had to take care of myself. Not discounting the offers for a tow, but for me life is about passion.

    No passion, no movement, not living well. When I race or train with my fellow friends, Ryan and Warren who have legit reasons due to physical limitations, how can I complain about anything in racing? Get over myself!

    It's a standard, not a comparison. I recently was reminded that by a friend. Set your own standards, but do it with kindness and conviction, know what you are getting into. I love racing, I'm committed to it and willing to take the risks, every second, wiling to go the distance.

    I had so much fun in this race! It was awesome, the crash, the finish, the ride, the athletes, there isnt' just one thing, its' everything' that makes this kind of racing special.

    why? Basically you get the opportunity to run your own race, inclduing mechanical problems, you still get more bang for you buck on offshore racing than any other type, and drive time. I am thankful, everything came together, it was a blessing.

    I'm looking forward to the Dana Point to O'side and back race. Can't wait!
