The Century City Canoe Club Tuesday Time-trials kicked off last night for the 2013 season. I work close-by, and have been meaning to go and check the club out, so used this as an opportunity to do so.
The Club hosts a time-trial on Tuesday evenings, starting at 6, during the canoe season. All are welcome.
10 paddlers set off for a 10km urban paddle around the waterways of Century City. I paddled in my surfski, and some of the paddlers were kind enough to slow down to come alongside and clear the weed off my rudder. I really enjoyed the paddle; as much fun as ocean paddling can be, it is quite relaxing to be able to settle into a pace on the flat water and get into the zone. I will now have to look for a K1!
My Garmin track show my speed varying more than I would have imagined it would. I see some of the guys strap their Forerunners to their boats, and I wonder if this gives a smoother reading.
A big thanks to the friendly crew at the club for a warm welcome and a great paddle!
