Results from Winter Series Race 5, 7th October 2018

We dodged the rain, which was on and off later. A bit of light wind made for fairly good conditions, possibly slightly faster than last week. The "11.35km mob" had light cross winds at Tacoma, unlike last week, when there was wind assisting once returning from the bottom turn. It was a close finish in the 7.58km section, ... More

Luckily, no repeat of Saturday's southerly buster! We enjoyed pleasant conditions, on and off, the water, with a satisfying attendance for a long weekend. There were three distances available, with the three 7.58km entrants racing separately to the other distances. New member, Mark Fuller - a sea kayaker - travelled from ... More

Sunny, but windy at times for the first 15km this year.  We did notice the wind when heading upstream from the 7.58km turn - those doing the 15km feeling it twice!

Results from Winter Series Race 2, 22nd July 2018

Good to see Anne Moore back paddling well, after a bit of a rough time, lately. HVPC Visitors Sally Verheul and Darrin Jenkins took full advantage of their "unknown ability" to finish second, getting back in under the hour, in excellent winter conditions. A "training run" led to an almost record performance by Andrew ... More
