We were back to handicap racing on Tuesday with a stiff breeze greating racers on the upriver leg, with the flow rate still a bit higher than normal is was hard up but fast back. Richard made great time coming in 2 minutes faster to take the race win. Phil Nelson was followed closely by Claye with both coming in around 80s faster; James was next over the line around 70s faster. Oscar held Jon off (around 60s faster) with Kobi in next (22s) and then Phil Wadley (19s) close behind. The remainder were a bit off there pace from last week. We also welcomed back Bill Williams, previous series winner, for his first race for a couple of years.
