Lea, I and her girls travelled up at 6 a.m to the event on a warm but cloudy day.
I will let the photos and captions relay the event.
The race traversed the Wanganui River.

Congratulating the other place getters!

Although my time was slower than 2 years ago I won the 50 - 54 grade by 6 minutes and was 4th overall! Though my calf continues to give me problems I was most satisfied to get through the race winning gold.
