The first race of the 2019-2020 Paddle ‘n’ Ski Hadspen races was held on Tuesday night with 15 paddlers taking part. The water level was at a great height and weather was pleasant giving us a great night on the water. There were some solid times by all paddlers. The handicaps are set below for next weeks racing.
Guntime for next week will be at 6:30 pm, (for those new to handicap racing your start time is you handicap after 6:30 pm, ie 13:50 handicap starts at 6:43;50) to be safe be ready to race at 6:40 pm. If you miss your start time you can still race, have your time recorded and score points. New paddlers will be able to set their handicap time. If you are starting more than 20 minutes after your handicap you may be asked to race a shorter course to ensure on water safety.
Check the main Hadspen page for more details.
We also welcome back our race sponsors, Paddle ‘n’ Ski, for the fifth year, in conjuction with Stellar Kayaks Australia they have provided a great prize of a Stellar paddle and a discount on a new Stellar Kayak for the end of the season raffle.
