Just an update on the Pan Pac - Day 1
A big thank you to our manager Jayne, and assistant managers Kelly and Maggie, who made sure our teams were ready for each race and got us down to the marshalling area on time. Also thank you to Singo and Kelly for organising the Pan Pac T-shirt which really complemented our race club gear!
It was a busy day as paddlers were jumping in and out of boats as we participated in quite a few events and had doubled up on padders.
The Great Grand Masters did reasonably well considering it was the first time Broadwater has put a GGM team on water. Many of the GGM were backing up also in the Grand Masters boat.
The Masters had a very competitive division and was able to get into the final where we just missed out on medially as the first 4 boats passed the finish line requiring a photo finish to see who actually positioned where in the race.
The Grand Masters gracefully took the pressure off the club by getting a silver medal after having to race the finals twice when the Tweed/Mt Warning boat nearly collided with the Ice Dragons and Broadwater Dragons race.
Congratulations to all our new paddlers who for some was their first regatta as well as their first Pan Pac!!!

Well done Broadwater on the first day! Good luck all tomorrow in the 500m races.
