Fairfield Hosts Winter Series Race 4

Fairfield Canoe Club hosted the marathon winter series race four, this year held at Nagambie. Despite the small turn-out, it was a great day of racing with plenty of fun had by all. 

Considering the rain over the past week, all were pleasantly surprised to arrive at Nagambie rowing centre on Sunday to find a clear sky and calm water. Online entries made for smooth registration, and the Trinity fundraising BBQ and stall gave paddlers and spectators alike plenty of options for warming snacks. 

My first winter series race

Christine Raviart joined Fairfield Canoe Club in 2012, and paddled her first winter series race last Sunday. Christine paddled on the Maribyrnong at Footscray Canoe Club in a club TK1 and apart from the hectic race start enjoyed the day. Christine says "the fact that even if you finish last you still bring points for the club has also encouraged me to participate" 
When did you join FCC, had you done much paddling leading up the race at Footscray?
