The equipment I use Part 2
Last weekend was my first hit out in my lead up to Hawaii, On Sunday morning I paddled at the 7Th Annual Macleay Island Classic. The race was a 15km race around the island, which is located in the Moreton bay area. For this event I chose to paddle my Epic V14. The start was fast, we did the first 3 km in 12 minutes (4 minute pace/km) at about 3.5km I got dropped from the lead group then next 5.5-6km I worked my back up to be back in the lead. With 6km remaining I knew it was going to be a tough battle between my fellow competitor and I. As the finish line was approaching quickly we both had our attempts at dropping each other off the wash, but in the end I came second place by half a boat length. During the race I learnt a few key lessons that I will focus on and hopefully try and improve on what I can before my next ‘marathon’ event. Next week I am going to be wrapping up the 2015 Queensland State Surf Lifesaving Championships.
Enjoy your week on and off the water.
