Paddle ‘n’ Ski Hadspen Race 8 January 2019

Race finish 8 January 2019

The first Paddle n Ski Hadspen race for 2019 was off to a slower than normal start with a reduced number of paddlers. It was a great night for paddling however and was enjoyable night to be paddling. The river had changed significantly from the final weeks of last year with the water level and current speed significantly lower. The need to learn some new lines and take a different route may have slowed everyone down as there were no personal bests acheived. Race times are below.
