Barnes also registered a second place behind Thunder Storm in the sub-junior social class on Saturday afternoon in 9:43.

Emma said the team hit a hurdle when it caught up to another boat in its second-place finish on Saturday.
‘‘We caught a boat, but we didn’t pass it,’’ she said.

Emma also competed in the open women expert behind Sonic Racing in place of Nicole Dixon to finish ninth.
