Kayak Krazy 10km Race Whanganui

2017 Whanganui 1.jpg

Race One of Whanganui’s two 10km Krazy Kayak races was raced in perfect June conditions on Sunday. Forty-three paddlers from Karapiro, Wellington, Waitara, Palmerston North and Whanganui enjoyed the conditions so much that a couple of hardy souls raced in “shirts off”.

The line honours over 10 km’s went to Joel Meuli and Erica Tanner. Erica showed a clean set of heals to the other females in the field however Joel had to contest with Toby Brooke for most of the race. With less than one lap remaining Joel made use of a turn and some good speed to break away and take honours, with Toby a comfortable second.

An interesting race developed in the masters mens division with the Flannery brothers from Wellington exchanging places with Paul Randall from Waitara. Some bad luck for James Flannery saw him temporarily side-lined to clear some weed. This allowed the slow starting Randall to progress his way through the field and eventually catch and overtake Matt Flannery and get involved with a close finish with his club mate Jerry Callebaut, who paddled well to take third in the open division.

A similar situation occurred for Liam Lace in the U18 division where after getting hooked with weed and stopping to clear his rudder was slowly paddling back to the front of the field and in doing so showed a clean set of heals to any challengers.

The womans 10km race didn’t have as many entries as hoped but there was a good battle between club mates Louise Clifton and Emily Caird, with Clifton eventually getting away from Caird to take the win.

In the shorter distances Sophie Brooke paddled away from her competition in the u16 girls, however the mens u16 race was much closer with Jack Clifton and Lucas Thompson battling away at each other with Lucas finally getting the jump on Jack in the final leg to the finish line. The competition in the u16 mens field was tight and it will be good to see all the boys do battle again in July. 

In the U14 division the tables were turned with Caleb Brimelow getting a jump on his competition to win his division with George Pedley coming in second, however the girls weren’t able to relax at all with a head to head battle going on between Anna Clifton and Julia Padrutt. The racing was so close that both girls crossed the line together and were inseparable so 1st equal was given.

The Multisport division numbers were affected slightly by another race in town but Mark Stoneman, Ash Christie and Robyn Scott all racing well to take honours in their respective divisions.

And last but not least the field included a novice paddler, James Hodges, who paddled well in his first race and four Tyro boys who also raced really well. First across the line was Zane Mills-Nossiter followed by Angus Sewell and brothers Sam and Hamish Cranstone.

Thanks to the Wanganui Ski Club for use of the facilities and to the Waitara and Whanganui parents who organised soup and other goodies. Finally well done to all the paddlers and we look forward to seeing you all in July – bring a friend!!
