In a Pickle

The only non-Jemicy team to achieve ACE in 2017 was In a Pickle, shown here about to cross the starting line.

The pickle cruised quickly along Pratt Street through the Inner Harbor.

Just before the water entry, the Pickle’s pontoons pivoted and remained low for the rest of the race.

At the water exit, the Pickle got stuck with mechanical problems, and was passed by several sculptures. For obstructing the flow of traffic, it won the Golden Dinosaur award, which is unusual for an ACE team.

After the sand and mud, the Wash World volunteer crew cleans up racers to complete the race.

The Gottwald family had entered earlier:
