The 3rd annual Chattajack is in the books and it was another unforgettable day. Tons of paddlers achieved massive bucket list checks, others PR’s and some set course records.
During the week preceding the race the Tennessee river had maintained constant high flows providing a sense of security to many that it would be the easiest year so far for fast times. On race day morning the flow was cut back significantly. When people registering for Chattajack as the question, “How far should I be confident paddling because I know the course goes with the current?”, we respond with, “You need to be able to paddle the full distance as if there were no current, and with possible headwinds.”
Men’s 12’6” – (New Course Record)
Anthony “Tony” Galang (Bay Village, OH) shaved 2 minutes off the previous course record in the 12’6” division coming across the finish line with a time of 5hrs 48min. Jorge Navarro (Culter Bay, FL) came in 2nd with a time of 5hrs 54 minutes. Two minutes behind in 3rd was Martin Burzynski (Sarasota, FL), with a time of 5hrs 56min. This three man ensemble worked together off and on for much of the race. Jorge suffered a couple falls early in the race but managed to claw his way back to Martin and Tony around mile 20. Eventually Tony pulled away and Jorge and Martin trailed back.
