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
