Times and report from today's event

Massive turnout for the last Event of the "Cold Kiwi Series" held from Dolly Vardon Park at Mana today.

With so many craft it requires a lot of patience from all paddlers to give everyone space at Events like these, so thank you for giving your paddling mates plenty of space at the start, the turns and some of the pinch points around the course.

For those not at the event today the course start /finish buoy was 20 metres east of the Mana Road bridge with the course heading through the deep water channels around Moorhouse Point then around the Welly Paddlers buoy in Browns Bay then back to the start /finish buoy

The short course was 1 lap and the long course was two laps.

The event started with a light breeze and flat conditions until the start when the waters churned up and craft fired off a nice wide start line. In the first 1 km of the event there was a bit of ripply water around the Browns Bay side then once lap two came along the breeze picked up to around 30 -35 kmh South Westerly producing a few more lumps and bumps.

Huge thanks again all the work Sharlene does on the day keeping up with all the craft, and peoples names it's no easy task. Thanks also to Kate Booth for working in well with Sharlene recording everyone finish and Kim Wineti for her support and finally to Dan Pringle for taking over camera duties as the event progressed.

Finally we really appreciate the support that Dave Annear and the Team at Fergs Kayaks Wellington give us in regards to juggling all the spot prizes around throughout the Series.

Remember go into Fergs Kayaks for all your Adrenalin 2P Thermal Clothing and if your after a great price on a new light weight high viz Buoyancy Vest.... the Think Kayak vest that we gave away today is down from $185 to $145.
