Great Ocean Paddle

The team spent last Saturday paddling 26km from Torquay to Angelsea in the Great Ocean Paddle. The conditions proved to be testing with the wind starting in the North but then as the race went on it moved from NW to WNW trying to blow us backwards and offshore. Wind speed averaged 29kmh with gusts between 46 and 57 Kmh. In sailors terms 15-18 knots with gusts up to 26-31 knots.  It was great Godzone training requiring us to suck it up and tough it out.

Gus and Karina also managed to take out the Doubles mixed class. Well done guys!
