From field reporter Lynnette Oostmeyer:
“Janice Mason and Ian Graeme, of Team Oaracle, stopped at the docks in Bella Bella, B.C. today to fill up their water and figure out where to camp for the night. This year’s race will be Janice’s fourth and Ian’s fifth. They joked that they may be the last, and oldest, team to make it to Ketchikan, but still plan to make it there by July 4th to catch their ferry home. Janice said that the ferry ride is one of her favorite parts of the race, because she gets to leisurely float by all the places she just worked so hard to paddle through. It should also be pointed out that the community here in Bella Bella has been, and continues to be, heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We should all be honored and humbled that they are allowing us to pass through their territory to participate in this race.”
