Hare 'n Hounds August 2015
A very windy night last Thursday 20th August for the Hare 'n Hounds, only 7 racing but great wash hanging skills for the top 3 or 4 paddlers! In TT1 it was a very close call between the category 6 paddlers, they were together the whole time, I'm not quite sure who wash washing and who was doing all the work!! But Struan came in just 1second ahead of Adele, followed by Bob another second later. Close behind was Ray and then Roger. Colin C. started last and didn't quite make the front of the pack ... but he was paddling strong looking to win TT2. Dave M. came next, and finally Graham who was going steady, compared to his last Hare 'n Hounds which he won!
Colin did push through everyone to win TT2, than the Category 6 Trio came round the corner fighting for places. It was Adele who pushed very hard at the last moment to take 2nd place, with Struan and Bob in a dead heat, less than a second behind! Roger didn't quite have the speed to catch them up, but came in 5th with Ray having another strong paddle to take 6th and Graham bringing up the rear.
Nobody was promoted, but Graham demoted back to 9, despite this he still leads the TT1 Nut Brown Hare Trophy, with 26 points Ray is catching with 24 points. In TT2 Jake still leads on 21 points with David on 20.
The next Race is on Thursday Night 10th September, we then move back to Sunday mornings for the final few races.
See you on the 10th September 6.00 for a 6.30 paddle up ... Race Start 7.00pm!!
