Paddle n Ski Hadspen Race 24 January 2023

Another great night to get on the water with some super quick times and the first ten paddlers across the line getting personal bests. Toby was first over the line, with a last minute leg length adjustment helping his stability keeping him in the boat and moving quickly. Bill was next over the line with Peter chsing close behind pushing both paddlers to times around 1 minute 10 faster than previous. Ken held off a fast finishing Isacc with both being around 1 minute faster. Five paddlers in 8 seconds kept the time keepers honest with the personal best times for all; April (14s), Jo (11s), Geoff (12s), Justin (14s) and Sabrina (9s) all having good paddles. We also had myself, Phil W, James and Richard having paddles but not faster than before. We wlcomed two new racers, with Jordan and Evan both posting solid time trial times.

Thanks to Phil Neslon and Donelda for sitting out in the rain and timing, it is much appreciated. Race times are below.
