The rain cleared away well before Start time, for a calm, sunny afternoon. Just about ideal conditions, with only a slight flow downstream in the discoloured "fresh" water. The "Top Guns"- Mick Carroll, Cam Tunbridge and the two OC1 Paddlers - who were following their rigorous training plans, which involved a couple of ... More

CCCC Time Trial 14, 8th March 2017

The "early birds" - Mick Carroll, SLR, Cam Tunbridge, UNO, and Lyn Crelly, Vajda 52, started about 4:30pm, paddling with Leigh Wilson, OC1, and his Partner, OC1, completing two laps of the "Time Trial" course, in good conditions.

CCCC Time Trial 12, 22nd February 2017

The strong wind gusts didn't stop us, but they did slow us down! Rob McPherson, in his Flash, seemed unperturbed by the conditions, establishing a sizable lead toward the final quarter of the 7.5km, almost reaching 10km/hr. Jim Buckland, however, was slowed by the conditions, and was a little "off the pace." Spe... More

2017 CCCC/BWP/HVPC Perpetual Trophy, 11th February 2017, Teralba

The night before, it was a difficult decision for the Organiser, HVPC, whether to race, or not! Even with hindsight, it was borderline! However, come racetime, it could have been even hotter, but thankfully, there were some fleeting breezes! It would be a day of “singularities” – one (perhaps two) withdraw... More
