Tuesday Night Barrel Races

Excellent turnout for the first barrel races of the year. On a cool evening with a stiffish breeze blowing up the river seventeen paddlers kept Helen and Carol very busy doing the time keeping. Fastest man on the night was Richie Rogers in 10m 48s with David Hatton seven seconds behind and first junior. Jenny Illidge (Worcester CC) with 11m 32s was nine seconds ahead of Jenny Swallow in the Ladies. New member Jonty Palfry (formerly with Banbury CC) put in a solid performance to finish in the middle of the field and Rona Fishburn in the junior ladies made her first appearance in the barrel races since 2013 (where have you been Rona?).
