With a dodgy start, with another canoes ama trying to hitch a ride on our canoe, we pulled out and led most of the way.. we didnt quite have the fitness to keep it up and the home team took advantage of the downwind and overtook just after halfway, with us finishing the 8km short course second over the line. Good effort to the crew we took down, some of which havent had much paddling time,really proud of you. Also thank you to Rod from Cronulla OCC who substituted our Eddie who was too sick with flu to paddle..we really enjoyed your calls from the back..even the f bombs! Also a big thank you to Stephen Dawes/Newcastle OCC for lending us their canoe again. To Tammy and Canberra Ice Dragons, thank you for the invite, you guys put on a great event and we will be down there hopefully with more paddlers from Maia at the next one! :)
