Paddle ‘n’ Ski Hadspen Race 12 January 2016

The first Hadspen race for the year has been run in great conditions with just a whisper of a cloud in the sky and a slight headwind for the return journey. The water level was up and flowing reasonably well, while a downed tree at the first willows made things a bit more interesting. Kamaia was first across the line knocking over 3 and a half minutes off her time, resistance training in a spec ski before switching over to an ocean ski worked wonders. Phil was next across knocking a second off his best, followed by Colin and Bill who were close to their best. A special mention to Tim who knocked 7 seconds off his best but due to a handicapping error came home in the back of the field. Welcome back to Blake who ducked across after an earlier training session and showed that he can still paddle with a bit of speed. Thanks to Geoff and Amanda for timing, it is much appreciated. Results are below.
