Paddle ‘n’ Ski Hadspen Race 14 February 2017

A great night for a paddle, it turned out to be generally a slow night for most paddlers. Claye won the handicap race with a 12 second personal best. Terry was next over the line about 25 seconds down on his PB, Tim and Paul were next. Duncan after doing his time trial last week were times weren’t recorded come over with a reasonable time. Phil Nelson and Myself aborted our race to make sure Jono was back in his boat safely while Richard took advantage to sneak through, off his long handicap, to gain some points. We welcomed Paul Clarke onto the water for his time trial after timing for most of the season it was good to see him on the water.

Thanks to Gill for timing. Thanks to Phil Barratt for spending a heap of time doing some tree trimming in the first narrow section. Race times are below.
