Paddle n Ski Hadspen Race 28 February 2023

Another great night for a paddle and some fantastic performances on the water. Oliver had a fantastic race, paddling 4:35 faster than his time trial from a couple of weeks ago, to take the race win. Toby made himself the rabbit for a big chase and managed to finish 2nd with a 1:10 improvement on his best. Ken, Claye and Phil had a great tight finish with all three finishing with the same time, all 1:04 faster than before. Evan managed to sneak past Grahame, paddling past the finish line at full speed both 32 seconds faster than before. Jo was next over the line, 11 seconds faster than her previous best. ? had a refreshing swim on the way back down river and Bill stopped to get him safely back into his boat, Thanks Bill.
