A Day of

Excitement on the Elizabeth

The 2nd Annual Portsmouth Paddle Battle is in the books and, judging from the comments we have received, a great time was had by all! A little less wind might have helped, but a little challenge is good every now and then. And speaking about a challenge, the inaugural Challenge Cup finally got off to a start with the Norfolk Naval Shipyard beating the US Coast Guard 5th District, Base Portsmouth.
