Appended below are the results of the Encounter Paddling Club’s January Time Trial, the first of 2017.
On what was a cool, damp day, a pleasantly surprising 25 paddlers including eight from the Holdfast and Onkaparinga Canoe Clubs, rocked up to start off their New Year with a splash.
Line honours went to Buck Finlay in a PB, a mere 9 seconds ahead of young, rapidly improving Ben Roberts who smashed his previous best by 2 minutes 47 seconds with event first time paddler, Isaac Turner from OCC, coming over the line in third spot.
After the horrific conditions of the December Time Trial when only 2 paddlers finished under scratch, today an amazing 76 percent of paddlers bettered their scratch times. Fastest paddlers were Dale Thomson and Bennett Maxwell who scorched around the 6 km at an average of 14.04 kph in the K2 with Jack Bain being the fastest of the K1 paddlers in the very quick time of 26 minutes 50 seconds
Thanks to Phil Dingsdale and yours truly for setting the course buoys and to Clare Dingsdale and Kerry Gallard for time keeping.
Until the 5th February for 2017 Series 1, Time Trial 2, happy paddling as we all work off the Christmas pudding.
