Time Trial #7

Barry Higgins takes the PB award by 1:16

It was a bright and blustery morning which made for tough racing last Sunday.

The winds certainly added to the fun on the start line, Dianne L finding it very difficult to get off the beach in her new ski as the wind kept blowing her into difficult positions, first onto the beach, then into the rocks, and finally into the mangroves before she finally got lined up for the start with only seconds to spare. We were glad to see her go, with everybody on the beach doubled over in hysterics at her struggles.

Also having difficulty on the start was Kevin N. He was away down the slot with his start time rapidly approaching. A series of relayed shouts from paddler to paddler finally alerted him to his predicament and he raced down the slot to make the start. John E who was off the same start passed Kevin, still 100m from the line, going in the opposite direction and suggested he just do a u-turn and join the race. The time keepers had other plans and had moved his start back 2 minutes when it was obvious that he was never going to make the start on time. And so it was that Kevin finally lined up on the start having paddled harder to make the start than some people paddle during the race.

At the other end of the event, Lachlan’s reign as fastest paddler on handicap took a bit of a blow when Barry H turned out and posted a PB on his second race in the TT. Lachlan was being pursued by Bob who paddled the TT solo for the first time in many years. He seems to have exhausted the pool of doubles partners for the moment.

An interesting observation that the first few paddlers across the line posted PBs for the day while those who crossed the line after fifth were decidedly slower. The working theory is that the winds picked up dramatically in the final few minutes of the race.

This was certainly consistent with the conditions out on the Georges River when Kate and Steve went for a 30km paddle after the race. The winds were strong enough to stop their double dead in it’s tracks as it rounded the corner at Como. With waves breaking over both cockpits, they were treated to a brief shadowing by the Maritime Rescue boat until they seemed to satisfy themselves that there wasn’t going to be a distress call to rescue two kayakers.

The next time trial is on September 16th, the weather forecast is for fine weather and the tides are predicted to be perfect for the 5km course.
