Zululand Surfski Club

IN contrast to the previous week's flat and balmy conditions, last week's race was held in 20km/h NE wind conditions with sufficient chop to challenge the newcomers and those who were more 'vertically challenged'.
The course was also very different, with paddlers having to venture well out to sea and then make the most of what choppy runs there were available on their return.
The race again saw a strong Zululand contingent with some seven development paddlers tackling the short course and 13 the long course. On the doubles front, Stretch and Colleen Struwig managed to pip the Kennedy and Stavast duo (convincingly they would say), but time will tell how the series pans out.
On the singles side, the juniors Sahun Austin and Donovan Kennedy came in second and third respectively, Mike Stevens was third veteran and Nigel Stevens was the first master.
The next race is the McCarthy Toyota King of the Bay race, which starts in Durban harbour and progresses out of the mouth.
