Paddle ‘n’ Ski Hadspen Race 20 October 2015

The first race for the Hadspen season was run in pretty good conditions, not to hot, barely any wind, and enough water. We had the first official race for 8 newcomers; Adam, Alex, Bill, Colin, Dane’, Dave, Geoff, and Jozina. Welcome guys its great to have some new paddlers about. The returning paddlers mostly showed signs of an off season with plenty of room for improvement. The exception was Tom with a time of 31:02, a great time to start the season off with. Thanks to Phil and April Nelson for timing, it is much appreciated. Here are the results.

Next week we will have our first handicap race with points for the race series up for grabs. The gun will go off at 6:30pm and then other paddlers start afterwards according to their handicap (for example Dave Allan’s Handicap is 15:00, so he will start at 6:45 pm). If you miss your start time you can still race and have your time recorded. New paddlers will be able to set their handicap time.

Check the main Hadspen page for more details.

See you all next week.
