Race 2 of our Paddler Series was held in Foxton yesterday and saw 27 compete across an 8km short course and a 18km long course which took them up the awa and into the Foxton Loop, something that many locals enjoyed watching from the banks and reserve in the town centre.
We would like to thank everyone for coming along to this event, to our volunteers, safety boat drivers and providers, to the clubs that entered and to all the supporters-we cant do these types of events without you.
Please see the results of both races and divisions here, and photos still to come!
