Conwy Ascent - 25th June 2016

Nice to catch up with friends at the annual Conwy Ascent race and also great to see a lot of Macclesfield club members out. Much more benign conditions this year, no nasty headwinds to contend with and no rough water.

I was racing with Glen Parry in a surf ski on my tail for the first half of the race, but managed to pull away from him. Was making some headway on the boat in front, but run out of time to catch him. I didn't realise he was the lead boat in the same class as me, so I finished second sea kayak in a time of 1 hour 10 minutes and 49 seconds.

After refreshments and the prize giving we returned to our boats to have a leisurely tour back to Conwy.
