By BBN Staff: At around 7:00 yesterday morning from beneath Cayo’s Hawkesworth Bridge, 61 teams of paddlers set off on the annual La Ruta Maya canoe race, en route to Banana Bank through the Macal River.
Although the number of teams is a little less than last year’s turnout, it was still a spectacular scene as canoes took off from the starting line on their 49 mile journey, which Koop Sheet Metal’s team completed first, earning it the lead coming into this morning’s journey to Double Head Cabbage.
This morning, the teams once again set off on the second leg of the race which will finish sometime before noonon Monday in Belize City with stops being made along the way.
