Paddle n Ski Hadspen Race 13 December 2022

A rough night for a paddle with a strong upriver wind blowing solidly all through the race and the threat of rain always around. Nelson made the most of the wind upstream and managed to knock thre minutes off his previous best, Peter was next over the line with a 90 second improvement and Bill rounded out the top 3 with a 90 second improvement. Richard also managed a personal best of around 15 seconds.
