2024 Canning Classic

The 2024 Canning Classic was held this morning from the beautiful Shelley Sailing Club.  Perfect conditions with high water 400mm on the Gardiner water metre and a very gentle breeze.  The club put on a great race with Hamburgers and Gelati’s for all the paddlers not to mention about 50% of the field going home with a prize.

APOLOGIES : I think i read out the finish time for a few paddlers rather than their corrected Actual Times, that would explain a few worried looks from people who felt they went faster than the time i read out – you did!  All the correct times are published in the results part of the website and on facebook – Sorry Folkes.  Link is also here

Apart from my mistake i think the day went very well, a very big thankyou goes out to all the CRCC members who attended and especially to those who assisted, in particular;

  • the CRCC Social Paddlers who did all the catering;
  • Chris Graham who organised Dr Jaggs, the Gelati Van, the prizes themselves and the Professional photographer – once we figure out how to get the photos we will let you all know.
  • Bull and Nicole Orton for donating some of the Kayaking prizes
  • Simon O’Sullivan for organising Webscorer registrations.
  • Donna for being a great sales lady and selling $500 worth of merchandise on the day.
  • and the rest of the Committee for all the pre thought effort that needs to go into the event.
  • Dr Jaggs local member for Riverton for attending
  • The Honourable Rosalie Evans for attending on behalf of PWA
  • Greg (former CRCC President) and Chis Kaeding for attending.
  • Greg Hocking our professional Photographer
