Rubber Ducky – Race 4

October 28, 2012

23 October 2012

 

It was a beautiful evening for racing this week with a light southerly wafting about.  This lent itself to a start at Greta Point and up to and around the fountain in Oriental Bay.

 

27 paddlers set off under handicap conditions with Ian Gillies setting the pace and leading the field to the Oriental turn and back to the turn into Evans Bay. The field had been steadily closing, led by the doubles of AJ & Kath and Jo & Chris dragging a flotilla of singles.  This, plus the back markers making ground, led to a lot of changes in the last third of the race.

 

At the finish line a very determined young paddler, Kurtis Imrie, off 6 minutes 30 handicap (on his ski), managed to push past the doubles and cross 7 seconds ahead and gain line honours. Behind him the next seven paddlers were within 15 seconds of each other with Glenn Muirhead being one of those having worked off the back marker of 9 minutes to claim fastest time. Fastest women went to Kris Jarvis amongst the 9 female paddlers in the field.

 

The hard luck story of the night would have to go to a hard paddling Tim Sutton.  Tim seemed to cop a bit of the side swell in the last hundred metres after having made steady progress through the field and took a swim less than 50m from the finish line!

 

It was great to see new paddlers again this week, Vicki, Stephen, Colin, Jacinta.  Sincere apologies if we have missed anyone at all.
