Cold Kiwi Series Event ONE

Hey Big thanks to everyone who turned out today and having confidence in both yours and my weather watching skills. We are picking that everyone managed to get their craft home safely after the event......that wind was fair "fanging it" on the way home.

To tell you the truth I would have been happy if only 12 to 15 people turned up awesome that you Wellingtonians show true strength and character to get out on days like today.

Sharlene would like to thank Kate Booth (photos) and Chris Fox (timing) extra sets of hands are always welcome and very much appreciated by us and the paddlers also.

From out point of view a big day bro.....up at 5.30 am checking the weather and loading up the skis (wind was too ballistic yesterday to safely do this!) Set the buoys out on the course 4 kms of warm up paddling.......pulling all the buoys back in 4 km of warm down paddling. Always a good catch up afterwards........this time at Go Bang Cafe, Jackson Street Petone.

Back home and cleaning the gear, buoys loading photos and of course the score sheet below.....don't read to much into the score sheet I think most people are just doing maintenance paddling at the moment :-)
Hey we forgot to draw the spot was won by Clarke Townsley it's a nice toasty warm Swazi top.......thanks Davey Hughes and the team at Swazi in Levin.

Just remember all the entry fee money accumulates to form a super spot prize voucher at the last event!....and there's a another Swazi top at each of the next 4 events as well !
