Paddle ‘n’ Ski Hadspen Race Series 1 March 2022

Some tough conditions favoured the stronger paddlers and those able to read the wind and strong current. Richard was first across the line with Geoff not far behind, Phil Wadley and Phil Barratt were next making the most of the difficult conditions. The general consenus was that it was one of the harder paddles for the season.
