The 19th Annual Two Harbors Kayak Festival participants were greeted with a sunny, warm day for races and classes on July 30. The wind did pick up later on in the day, requiring two kayakers to be helped in, but it didn't put a damper on the festivities. Here are some photographs and results from the weekend long event.
