2009 Murray River Dress Rehearsal
The annual Murray River Dress Rehearsal race was held Sun 13 December. 188 paddlers competed in 90 boats. As usual, relays were popular with some exciting action at the checkpoint at the club.
Andrew Stimpson from Footscray was fastest over the full distance race, covering the 28km course in 2:07:43. Full race results available here.
Thanks to all the Footscray members who made the day possible: Ben P x 2, Neil, Steve, Nicky, Dean, Annette, Kelly, Trent, Shay, David, Stew, Terri, Jeff, George, Lyndal, Ange, John, Gayle, Melissa, Nadine and Dom. Once again big thank you to Altona SES and Westernport First Aid for their on-going support.
The next race at Foostcray is the Saltwater race on 7 Feb 2010. Hope to see you all there!
