BGCC seals win in 2019 PaddleNSW Marathon Series
Saturday 24th August: The results in the final race of the PNSW Marathon Series saw BGCC win the series and the Brian Norman Perpetual Trophy: 2019 Champion Marathon Club. While only a small number of BGCC paddlers made the trek to Teralba, they managed not only to round out the solid club point-score win, but for BGCC to take out the Club ICF-boats Competition as well - by just one point - from Manley Warringah. A great end to a great six months of paddling.
Congratulations to all BGCC members who have taken part in this 10-race Series - about 50 different club members. Some to all races, some to just one or two. With some very interesting doubles partners in the Doubles-boats round at Lane Cove (bonus 50 points/doubles boat) and heroic portaging/running/walking/struggling/strolling at /Windsor (also for bonus 50 points/boat)
