Exciting times!! Go hard team!

An opportunity to take the mighty Waikato River from Cambridge to Hamilton (Cam2Ham paddle race) was jumped at by more that 40 SUP paddlers with over 100 other paddle craft. A fast 400 cubic m/ flow, this year (resulted in over 26km course for most) if you worked the river opportunities to gain water speed. The unfamiliar river environment, caught many unaware with the odd eddy line causing a few swims and the pillowing narrows bridge section a few more swims but this is all part of the fun of the Cam2Ham.
18 year old Fergus Dunlop took out the fastest SUP of the day (1:46.11) by just 14 seconds from Jan Dunlop (1st master ). 3rd place was just as close with 11 seconds between Jordan(1:51.12) in 3rd and another master Chris Dickson taking 4th place overall. In the women’s 14 year old Rosara Davis took fastest women (1:57:41)in her first Cam2Ham (9th overall ) over winning masters women Marlene Bergh both under 2hrs for the 26km plus course.
Top 5 men
1.Fergus Dunlop
2.Jan Dunlop
3.Jordan Zagonel
4.Chris Dickson
5.Matt Johnstone

Top 5 Women
1.Rosara Davis
2.Marlene Bergh
3.Trudy Lile
4.Jane Rattanachai
5.Flis Pask

In the 11km event Husband and wife Karl and Pip Gaensicke took out 1 & 2 spots with Carmel Dowling taking 3rd overall.
Congratulation to you all. A special mention goes to 16 year old Tessa Nicholson who took on the full 26km event to the end in 2hrs: 47min. Tessa wanted more of a challenge after completing the 11km twice.
The full race results and category results can be studied here.
