On a cold and windy morning CSKC ensured a comfortable run for the barefoot paddlers doing the portage by laying carpet over the portage course.
Although the weather resulted in a few non starters all paddlers had no difficulty in handling the course and posting good times.
Also pleasing was the presence of juniors. In the New To Paddling series, U14 paddler Charlee Dickson paddled beautifully to cover the 3km course in 24 minutes , while 15 year old Maxton Ward paddled the 5km Division 13 in 33minutes.
At the completion of the race certificates were presented to all placegetters.
