1st January 2019 and the club was back on the water! This time for the annual New Years Day race. The race started 4km up river from the club and paddlers set of at intervals depending on their devision. Meaning the clubs Premier paddlers set off some 8min after the Div 3 girls. Despite their best efforts they couldn’t catch the juniors up and Theo Wright took 1st place with Jessica & Finley Croome having a photo finish for 2nd, with Isaac Wright taking 3rd place. An added element to the race is the fancy dress competition, this years theme was SciFi, set by last years winner Kyle Benson. Kyle did an amazing job organising the race this year and everyone is already looking forward to 2020’s race and to find out what Theo has planned.
