The Junior DRR paddlers just keep getting faster. Even TIS testing on the padding Ergo, prior to the race, didn’t slow the times.

The Handicap event was taken out by John Dalco’s Time Machine, from Alistair Stanny and Kate Mollison (almost a dead heat on Video!) – being only one of a few very close finishes! There was a spectacle mid course… and the spectacles are still there! Anyone finding a set of glasses in the mud on the golf-course side of the river 100m upstream of the first bend (doesn’t narrow it down much!), email me at email@example.com and we’ll have them returned….
The final race will be a 2.8 km flatwater handicap race. Starting from the walkbridge near the beach, to a turn at the walkbridge at the golf course, returning to the beach walkbridge. All craft welcome. Entries taken from 6:00pm, racing starts 6:30pm. Next event, Tuesday March 22nd.
