With only 42 weeks to go....

Some more serious kayaking clubs have little countdown clocks on their website, only 42 weeks until the 2015 Hawkesbury Classic.  Rivers is not to be out done. On Sunday 1 February Dee, Andy, Ian, Michael and Ben started our training.  We used our paddle down the Cooks River to brush aside the cobwebs.  Once into Botany Bay we picked up the pace as we passed Brighton le-Sands and San Sousi.  By the time we reached Captain Cook Bridge the speed and headwinds had taken their toll.  Retreating to a local cafe, we recharged on coffee before the return leg.  A beautiful downwind ride across Botany Bay, catching small swells quickly brought us back to the Cooks River.  By the time we reached the club house, all of us had identified where our fitness and equipment could be improved over the next 41 weeks.
