|The next three photos were sent to me by
Diana Grimison. It seems like many people participated in this final Cayuco Race.
Diana gives the narration of these three photos.
I am sending you some photos of the Honorable Simon Ferro, US ambassador to Panama. He and Bob Rupp paddled one stretch in the Slave Galley. They paddled in the sprint from the Gamboa airstrip to Dredging Division. We actually had 11 people in the boat! Bob Rupp sat next to me, and the ambassador sat next to Roberto Bruno. At least it was only a short stretch, it was very uncomfortable! We didn't switch, we only paddled on one side. In this photo, the people are: Dennis Huff, Brian Keeney, and with his back to the camera Simon Ferro. I think they were giving him last minute instructions :-)
