Fleetwood Seaquest - 20th September 2008

Format for this year's seaquest was slightly different from previous events. In the past there have been a number of controls to punch (orienteering style) that necessitated getting out of your boat. This year the event was more of an out and out race with only a punch at the turning point.

I entered the longer "seaquest" event that was advertised as 22kms round trip. I finished 2nd single kayak in a time of 2:07:43, just over a minute behind the winner, Glen Parry. Glen was paddling an Epic 18 which is a lot faster than my Capella 163. Might need to spend some money if I'm going to take these events seriously!

Weather was great and the event was very friendly with a BBQ afterwards at the outdoor action group base in Fleetwood.
