Daily Record Sports

No matter what the goal of their boat is or the experience level of the competitors inside that vessel, there’s little doubt about the importance of team captains during the Texas Water Safari.

Many of these captains are Water Safari veterans, who know the San Marcos and Guadalupe rivers well. These captains have gone through the pain, the sleep depravation and eventually the sheer sense of accomplishment that comes after touching the Seadrift Seawall before the 100-hour deadline.

Even so, a much smaller contingent of captains have never raced in the Water Safari before and must learn on the fly as they guide their boats toward the finish line.
