This weekend I went to and competed in the Tees Race. A new event organised by Rory Woods and Lee Royle, on the Upper Tees section. There was a relatively good turn out, with over 50 people attending. There was a time trial, followed by a boater X, with a Ladies category. It was a really fun day with people chipping in and helping out where ever they were needed. A fun atmosphere and some nice lines, despite there being virtually no water.
I came 2nd, out of 3 Ladies, by a three second margin in the time trial, but significantly more in the boater X. I was very pleased as whilst on a normal day at the Tees I find the Jacuzi Shoot line quite intimidating, I knew it was faster, and every race run, it was an easy call to take that line for the added speed, without a second thought.
Dad even entered in his Pirouette for added speed, unfortunately he was missing the last foot of it, so not as much speed as he’d have liked.
Dad came 32nd, I came 25th and Mike came 17th overall, with times of 4.23, 4.12 and 4.00 respectively!
I also won a very small (since no one else would fit it) Typhoon onesie, and a SheWee!
