Paddle ‘n’ Ski Hadspen Race Series 21 January 2020

The first race back for the year with a slower hitout in some strong wind. Phil was first over the line with a good time knocking 40 seconds off his best, followed by Tim who got himself stuck on a rock which slowed him down a bit. Richard was third with a best time off his slightly longer handicap; James, Amanda and I were alightly off our best times. We had a new paddler with Liz putting in a good time trial time. Race times are below.

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.
