PNSW Race 5, (WCC)

Round 5 of the Marathon series was held at Windsor by Windsor Canoe Club at the start of the famous Hawksbury Canoe Classic. Another perfect day and condition’s greeted us upon arrival 

There were 7 of us from the Huntervalley Paddlesports Club that made the voyage to Windsor with Glen and Peter doing their first ranking race together in a double with amazing results. It will great to have you both on board for the rest of the series .Well done Gentleman.


Once again Bernie and Warwick outdid themselves coming 3rd you two look like poetry in motion out there on the water. Our President Mr Ray Baxter also did an impressive result coming 1st but was more impressed the young fellow- Mathew from Manley Warringah hot on his heels giving a Ray a good run only tobe more impressed of how young he was. A future Olympian. Greg did a PB and came in 8th I required sunglasses all the home with his smiling results blinding me in the car. It must have been the spirit fingers working wonders. That leaves me - Sue getting a 2nd. Dual members all doing exceptionally well in their divisions including Darrin Jenkins, Marni Kay, Sally Verheul and Russel Brown. Look out Russel she is a powerful motor in the back seat of your double No  recreational paddling with Sally as the motor.

Thank you to the volunteer’s and timekeepers to assist in making our day safe and fun.
