A great night on the water with a light downriver breeze and a slowish current greeted a small field for this weeks race. April (+2s) was first across the line narrowly holding off Phil Barratt (+9s), Amanda (+22s) was not far behind in third place. Bill was 25 s back from there with Phil Nelson another 20 s off the pace. Chris Bates had a paddle of a very long handicap but wasn’t timed. Jo got a solid time trial to set her handicap for next week and I managed a 30s PB before everyone else got on the water.
Race times are below. We will not be racing on 26th January and will return to racing on 2nd February.
