4 club members attended the recent State Marathon Championships. Overall this event was fairly poorly attended, possibly due to the announcement of the
rescheduling next year where the Championships will occur closer to Nationals, possibly in February, Date to be confirmed.
Tim finished an impressive 3rd overall but 1st in the U23 age group. Chris sufferred from his addiction to making boat changes and Daryl had a close finish
with paddlers in different age categories.
Sunday proved to be the least attended races, with 1 Open Mens K2, 1 Open Womens K2, and a few class amalgamations to allow some racing to occur.
While poorly attended it was good practice for those looking at doing the BV100 later in the year where paddlers will need to back up and paddle the second day.
(it also allowed some “fun” to be had , Mens/Womens K2 Open).
Hopefully we will have better attendance at the next State Championships in 5 months time.
