Profile: Yahn Gentry
(race leg in 2011 race): Kayak
did you become involved in the Ski to Sea: some of my friends from my old rugby
team wanted to start a ski to sea team and I wanted to do it since I heard
about it so they had me do the kayak leg.
has kept you together as a team for so long now? Being on the rugby team and
just being friends in general. I had a team of a bunch of really good genuine
people that I have a lot of fun with.
Occupation: full time student, but I did work at Bellingham bar and grill as a
bouncer for a while last summer
of Employment: I’ve been in school for about four years now, at WWU.
electronics engineering technology major
Sport: mixed martial arts
Quote: carpe diem
Book Read: Game of Thrones
Term Dreams/Goals: to become a pilot
long have you been involved in the Ski to Sea? Just last year
you plan to be in the Ski to Sea race again? If I can ever get a team
you plan to do all 7 legs of the race? I may possibly do that next year. I think
I can be in good enough shape for it.
do you like about the Ski to Sea? The chance to race people in the community, I
also like how big this whole thing has become
would you tell others about the Ski to Sea? That it is really fun but make sure
you have some good gear because a fifty pound kayak takes a lot more effort to
propel through the water then a ten pound one
do you like about the Bellingham/Mt Baker region? It is absolutely beautiful in
the spring and summer. And for the winter and fall you always have Mt. Baker.
of Wisdom: see the goodness in everything and people will see the goodness in
you, work hard play hard, grab life by the balls, etc.
