  Brown’s Rivulet Race Series 2004/2005

Race 5 Results are out now!!

Race #5 was held on Tuesday 8th February 2005 and was a success, with 19 paddlers competing, despite a clash with the Taroona Time trial and many club members away paddling on NZ’s south island. The race featured 2 Time Trials with the best run counting.

The Time Trial event was taken out, overall, by Dave Gray in 7:48 from Swarz in 8:22 and Carol Hurst in 8:40, following on from her recent success at the Australian Wildwater Championships.

The Open Womens was won by Carol Hurst in 8:40 in her DRR boat from the multi-sport boat of Hanny Alston in 9:29 and Judy Clarke’s DRR boat in 9:58.

The hottly contested Junior DRR event was taken out by Kate Mollison in 9:34 (following her weekend selection in the Junior Australian Slalom team) from Doug Hagger (TIS Talent Search) in 10:19 and Oliver Lovell (TIS Talent Search) in 10:39, paddling a Wavehopper! Alistair Stanny (TIS Talent Search), paddled a Wizard to record a time of 9:45, being the fastest time yet recorded by a Junior Development Squad member.

Following successes in the recent Australian Wildwater Championships, the Junior Development squad has continued to impress. Paddlers are now looking toward paddle under 10mins  in the Time Trial event (from 16 min times last November!).
