Race Series 2016 kicked off under extreme conditions…

The Race Series 2016 kicked off under extreme weather conditions with wind gusts up to 50 knots and temperatures below 7 degrees Celsius.

42 determined paddlers still decided to get out there to race an epic event on an altered race course between the VRC clubhouse and the Ocean Park marker.

Beside a lot of hulies and a few rescues, all paddlers made it home safely to share their race stories around a well deserved cup of mulled wine.
