Fairfield Canoe Club
2019 Centenary Year

Echuca mini - new club director fastest canoeist !


Twelve Fairfield members paddled the 50kms, 20kms, or relay on Saturday, in the last winter series marathon race for the season. Total points are yet to be finalised (keep posted) A sunny day with a few wind gusts made for a great paddle. The occasional speed boat made for some unexpected large waves, and of course the mandatory paddle steamers, just out of Echuca, made an interesting final few kilometres. 

Highlights of the day included Ali's first race for Fairfield, the wooden 'paddle' trophy's presented to the winners, the gutsy effort of our full distance paddlers (starting at 6.30am!) and Robin Curwen-Walkers fruit cake at the finish.


And a special mention: New club club board director, Steve Routley was the fastest canoe paddler on the day - and was faster than most of the k boats as well !

Thanks to Joe and Foster for being race officials on the day, and to the Echuca-Moama canoe club for hosting the race.
