Paddle ‘n’ Ski Hadspen Race Series 16 November 2021

A great night on the water with barely a breath of wind led to some great times. John showed the way knocking seven minutes off his time from last week, I followed him about three minutes faster than expected with Graham just behind me with a similar improvement. James continued to enjoy his new ski taking around 90 seconds off his best, Ken also put in some hard work to be about a minute faster than last week.Claye and Phil Wadley were slightly better than last week as well, while Richard Pearson was a couple of minutes faster off his long handicap. We also had Richard McMinn and Roger Butorac out for their time trial runs; while Phil Barratt and Nathalie had a exploration paddle.

Massive thanks to Mary for timing the race this week, race times are below.
