Some weird weather cleared to give some nice paddling conditions with the wind dropping to basically nothing through the race, this led to some speedy times with 13 personal best times acheived, great paddling to all. Donelda was the quickest however with a 4 minute faster time than her previous best, Ryan and April were both around 3 minutes faster, Graham and Jock were around 2.5 minutes faster. Bill made up around 2 minutes, Geoff and Nathalie were around 80 seconds faster, Phil Nelson was around 35 seconds faster with James, Phil Wadley and Richard Pearson all finishing within 2 seconds of each other around 30 seconds faster than previous. John managed a 3 second personal best after I sent him off slightly late.
