A cracking night for a paddle with some good times recorded and a great finish bunch. Graham was faste around 90 seconds faster than previous, followed by Claye and then April (35 and 15 seconds respectively). A great bunch then kept the time keepers busy with James, Roger, Ken and Phil Wadley all finishing within 5 seconds and all about 10 seconds faster than previous. Myself and John were off the pace from the week before, while Phil Barratt battled recurring sticks in rudder, slowing him from his usual cracking pace. Richard managed a quick time while paddling by himself. We also welcomed back Geoff and Tim for there first races this season as well as newcomers Isaac and Nathalie.
Thanks to Mary and Phil Nelson for timing, it is much appreciated, race times are below.
