Hare 'n Hounds Sept 2015
An amazing warm night for our last evening Hare ‘n Hounds (the last 3 races are back on Sunday mornings). We were a little low on numbers, but all 9 that paddled (2 K2’s) all gained valuable points!
Jake paddled with James in K2, and despite it being a first ever outing together paddled well, coming home 1st in TT1, only 7 seconds behind Jess and Rona came in strong. Struan was 3rd followed very closely by Ray. Roger was 5th (feeling tied). Dave M. came in 6th and finally Jess (Jelly as we know her). I must say a huge well done to her, it was a first for Jelly and probably the longest she had ever paddled! She finished with a huge smile and was really pleased with her achievement … she’ll back next time hoping to go faster … well done Jelly!
Only 4 carried on to do TT2, Jake and James stayed in the lead despite pulling in at Royals RC … for seat change … Jake wasn’t impressed with James’s steering so they did a quick swap! Jess and Rona maintained their 2nd place with Roger 3rd and Ray in 4th.
Well done to Ray who had PB’s in TT1 and 2, he has now gone into the lead for the TT1 Trophy, whilst Roger leads TT2. Jess and Rona are coming 2nd in both ( but K2’s not eligible for Series Trophies). There are still 3 more races left and no one is clearly in the lead …. So make a date for the next race Sunday 18th October 9.30 for 10.00 paddle up and start 10.30 PROMPT. Back to making soup again … to warm –up and refresh afterwards!
