CCP Winter Series Race 3, 9th August 2020

Hi Members and Friends,
Club Competition went ahead, observing Covid 19 restrictions.
Andrew Wilkinson was the winner of the “two lap” 15km section, followed closely by Marg and Rob Cook, Aidan Shiton and Mick Carroll.
The flow downstream, with a headwind, made the upstream legs a bit slower.
Greg Hillier did well to recover from a swim, after “redecorating” a low hanging bush, when navigating too close to the bank!
There were no PBs that I am aware of – possibly as some paddlers raced yesterday at the PaddleNSW event at Windsor.
The Lucky Prizes were won by Andrew Wilkinson, Max Lyons and Marg Cook, who was delighted with the chocolates!
As usual, the Event wouldn’t happen without the faithful Timekeepers – Diana and Margaret – thank you, Ladies!

One more race before the Wyong River Ultra on the 30th August. This year, it will be run over two 15km laps.
Covid 19 restrictions will mean that there will be no “Briefing” beforehand – it will be available “online” for Competitors.
Also, there will be no “Ceremony” after the Event – Results will be available via Webscorer ( as will Entries). All attendees are requested to vacate the area, without undue celebration or gathering. We plan to invite the local Coffee Van and trust that patrons will observe the Covid 19 Regulations.

If we keep observing the health instructions, we will survive, and continue our paddling!

Regards,
Nick.
