2023-07-09 CCP Winter Series Race 1

Hi Members and Friends,

Strong, gusty, westerly winds this morning, affected most paddlers, but no swims! I would not be surprised if the worst of the gusts didn’t exceed 50kph!
The only craft to record a better time than their last race, was Russell and Marni! Well done!
They also escorted Laura back, against the wind – thank you, for your concern, (and extra ks), Russell and Marni.
Laura paddled a standard “Stand Up Paddle Board,” (the flat, recreational type, not the “kayak like” racing ones). It was certainly the worst day for it! Everyone was most impressed with her stamina and determination!

Of course, the winds abated a bit, after the race!

Lucky prizes won by Paul and Malcolm.
Thank you Timekeepers – Diana and Margaret!

See you next race – and for the AGM? (wearing your “Volunteer” hat?)
