Hadspen Race 13 January 2015

I am beginning to sense that the weather gods are testing us, three races in a row with downpours to complement the start and finish. Irrespective of the weather there was a good turn out of paddlers for the first race of the year with two new paddlers in Mark Rathmell and Michael Peters, welcome guys. All paddlers were keen to get away and show the efforts that they had put in over the off season.

Phil Barratt led the way showing that he is on his way back to his best knocking 2 minutes of his season best. Ross McDonald knocked a few seconds off as the only other paddler to get a season best time. Too much rest and relaxation and not enough recreation over the break on display here.

Thanks to Paul Kelly for standing out in the rain to time and to Phil for keepingĀ Paul company on his paddle after the race. Results from tonight are below.
