Sorry folks no photos yet from our awesome day yesterday, might be able to get some up this avo (technical issues i.e. coach isn't tecinological enough). The boys had a really good head 2 head race but an unfortunate draw had them beaten in their first knockout race by the eventual finalists. Thats what happens when you have a poor sprint time unfortunately, the boys are a bit gutted because they now know that they could have brought out a bit more mongrel to the race ... too polite these kiwis kids.
never mind all that though, we had an awesome afternoon with an awesome river run down the DR section. It is an awesome piece of water, pretty full on, so coach went down with the boys to see how they are going to handle it and coach was proud as punch and reckons they will be all good. It is quite intimidating water and a bit of a shame we couldn't get more practise runs in but the lads are keen so bring on the downriver!
A well earned lie in this morning before an afternoon of slalom training, another nice day, better make the most of it because the forecast isn't flash, will be nice to have a bit of respite from the sun to be honest!
