Perfect weekend for South Island Champs

Author -  Karen Simpson

It really was a perfect weekend down in Twizel, surrounded by the alps and without a breath of wind, for the 60 competitors who entered the South Island Canoe Sprint Championship. This was also the South Island Schools Champs and so there was some really competitive racing going on with prizes for top Primary, Secondary and Uni on the line.
