Results for Race 6 of the Winter Series 2013 – 8 Sep

 

Another great turn out, and a big thanks to all supporters, volunteers and of course paddlers. The series was brought to you by Tanya and Jörn Scherzer, Turi and Pania Hodges, Chris Fox, Sharlene and Chester Burt. The forecast was patchy but the weather turned out to be a stunner. Lots of sun, with a stiff breeze, but a very strong tide.

P1290710

The course today started at Mana, to Browns Bay, back to Mana and around a turn buoy, on to Onepoto and around a marker there, and back to Mana for an on-the-beach finish run to the flag. The distance was about 10km. Our SUP brothers and sisters did the first half of the course to Browns Bay and back.

A big thank you to Dave Annear from Fergs Kayaks for again supporting the series. Contrary to some urban myths, Fergs Kayaks caters for all paddling needs, including surfski, kayaking, outrigging and SUP, so check them out next time you are in town (Queens Wharf). We had a great selection of spot prizes, and it turns out that every one of the paddlers present at the prizegiving got a prize. The total value of the prizes exceeded $2000.
