Elephant Butte 2nd Annual Kayak Tournament turned out to be a bit less  than expected.  Mother nature did not help matters.  We had winds over 20 mph which can get dangerous on that lake.  The tournament was shortened.  There were about 39 entries in the event.  Fish were caught and prizes were awarded.  We went up with a group of 5 kayaks.  2 Hobies, 2 Icons, and one Sun Dolphin. Wind and light trailers don’t mix.  Having the whole bunch of kayaks on one trailer was bothersome with the high winds.  The kayaks in J hooks would catch the gusts.  We will rethink the  trailer configuration next time.  I made stabilizers for the smaller kayaks that turned out to work great.  There was no worries about tipping.  Actually, our group was mad that they stopped the tournament early.    Can’t wait to get back on the water.  I will post a short video later.
