A beautiful night for paddling greated 16 paddlers and they took advantage of the great conditions to lay down some quick times. Angus was the race winner taking advantage of having some time triallers to chase to take 169s off his previous best time, followed by Bill 167s faster and April rounding out the top 3 with a 100s improvement. The following paddlers were also faster than their previous best; Richard (79s), Kobi (68s), Phil Nelson (57s), Phil Wadley (56s), James (39s), Ken (26s) and John (14s). A great job by everyone. We also welcomed back Amanda, Jenn, Jethro and Chris for their first races of the season; Cathie also joined the race for the first time taking on the short course to get acquainted with her boat.
