For the second consecutive year, the event hosted a stand-up paddleboard race from Saba Rock to Leverick Bay.

“I was surprised with the numbers,” Mark Cochran said. “It was nice to see that many people on a variety of boards.”

It was Mr. Cochran’s first time competing in the SUP event. He finished in fifth place.

Earlier this year, he participated in the Painkiller Cup — a team event that starts at Trellis Bay and finishes at the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke.

After the race, he was talking with his former teammates — Kim Takeuchi and Mike Hirst. All three agreed that the VISAR race was very challenging.

“It is short enough that it is still a sprint, but long enough to make it tiring,” Hirst said.
