New boat and the next Challenge – Poole Harbour Race

Got my new sea kayak in July, a lovely Mega Viking, is longer, sleeker and faster than my last one, so after some good test paddles in the surf of Pembrokeshire and North Devon and playing around Combe Martin I thought it time to do another Kayak Challenge. This time I plan to do enter an open water race in Poole Harbour. The Poole Harbour Race is open to different types of paddled craft and runs over an 8 or 15 mile course.

Not sure which course I’m doing yet, the 8-mile is easier and has more classic sea kayak entrants to race against, however the 15-miler is tougher, has more kudos, but has less entrants to race against. Whatever I choose I will be raising Sponsorship for the Crohns MAP Vaccine trials and if the race works in my favour my sleek new boat and lack of injuries may even give me a chance of getting a placing. Wish me luck!
