Results from the last Frostbite race no 11 of the series

Posted: 26th March 2012 by jerseypaddleclub in Frostbite race news

10 racers turned out for the last race of the Frostbite series. Great surf and a few people of island meant we were 5 regulars down. The course was a new M shaped layout that involved multiple turns, strong cross winds and a bit more distance than the normal races.
John Harvey and Andre LeGeyt led the pack from the beginning soon gaining a good lead. The whole race John led just ahead of Andre until the final stretch when Andre made a break for it pushing John to step up a gear to catch up. The race finished with a beach sprint finish with both racers crossing the line in joint 1st overall. With Andre taking the 14ft and John the 12’6ft.
In 3rd place overall was Gary Smith who did amazingly well for his FIRST race and I’m sure with more practice will be a force to be reckoned with.
The stand out paddler of the day was veteran paddler Tim Rowe who fell off 3 times along the 2 lap course and each time he pulled him self back to the front of the main pack to finish 4th just behind Gary.

Due to a few regular racers not being able to make the last event the prize giving for the series will be postponed till the first Summer Sizzler race on the 14/15 April.
