Big thanks to the double-fistful of C4 and K4 paddlers who braved the forecast – it paid off!
Conditions were actually pretty good: very little wind, a bit of rain and the water was almost tepid.
The C4 race was the pick of the day: with the guys pitted against a mostly female Footscray crew. Neck-and-neck until the final turn when the guys took in some serious water – the girls taking full advantage for a strong win.
The girls beat the boys in the K4 Juniors; the boys over the girls in the K4 Open.
The carefully pre-selected Footscray handicap teams were hastily re-arranged at the last minute: the chocolate bunnies went to the second crew.
