Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is from a friend known to Eleana and Alex as Auntie Sue Sue. Susan Harris is the spokesperson for her "Abreast in a Boat" group (comprised of women who have had breast cancer). She was noted to have trouble keeping her paddle high in a drifting tophand. Her coach often called out "Top hand, Sue!" and the name stuck. Susan notes that the Maori women of New Zealand called the boaters, "Wahina Toa" which means strong and mighty women.
