[Video] The 43rd Annual Buffalo Bayou Partnership Regatta Hits the Water

Did you know that the largest canoe and kayak race in Texas takes place in the middle of Houston? For over four decades, participants have braved the waters of Buffalo Bayou to compete in the Buffalo Bayou Partnership Regatta.

If you have any experience in a canoe or a kayak, you've got to respect what these racers do every year. 15 miles on the bayou sounds intense, even more so in a year like 2015, which temperatures were below average for a Saturday in March.

Still, even with the risk of chilly water and sore muscles, it does look like lots of fun. And at this point, being in the Regatta would be more than just a fun thing to do, you'd be a part of history.

What we're saying is, you should probably start practicing now. Your arms will thank you.
