US East is doing pretty well in the individual competition leading into the quarter and semi finals.  We still have 4-5 competitors vying for placement in the next rounds.  However, we have been eliminated from the Team competition.  We were edged out by the US West by literally one point.  Our team has no Junior competitors which cost us at least 4 points.  Let’s get some youth into these competitions!  We congratulate the US West, Basque and England teams for moving on to the team finals.

Please enjoy the photos in the gallery below of our US East team.  These are a mix of shots taken by Lynn Usher, Russ Buskirk, Spencer Cooke and Shari Robins.

Thanks again to Sea Kayak Carolina for helping us choose the 2011 US East Team.  We look forward to another great surf kayak event in the fall of 2012 back at Folly Beach with the SKC crew.
