The first stop of the O’Neill Tahoe Cup Race Series was held at Donner Lake this past weekend. The event was met with unusual winter like conditions making the race extremely challenging for competitors. The day started out with sunshine lighting up the snow-capped backdrop, but by the time the starting horn blasted a light snow began to fall. The 5-mile race started at the West End Beach Park where competitors paddled 2.5 miles along the south shore of Donner before making the crossing near China Cove. Once the buoy on the north shore was reached, there was an upwind 2.5-mile paddle back to the West End Beach Park and the finish line.
