20th Annual Canoe Race Pictures

On last Sunday, this crew and friends piloted their canoes for a race around Wilton Manors on the New River.

Here, the Oars Power team was joined by Vice Mayor Tom Green and Commissioner Carson at the event.

Every year, the event has folks who compete in a race around the Island, and this year was the 20th.

The (Jolly) Green Giants of Wilton Station were there in force.  They were returning this year for another stab at the win.

The racers lined up at the starting line at Colohatchee Park. 

Former Wilton Manors Mayor and current seated Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler was a competitor at the race on one of the teams.

And the winners this year were the team of

Seiler, Sautter, Zaden, Rimes, and Weihe!

Congratulations to them and all the participants!
