Great effort by George at the 2nd Annual Oban Sea Kayak Race around Kerrera

The 2nd Annual Oban Sea Kayak Race took place on Saturday 3rd September.
The organisers state “the field this year was very competitive and was reflected by the range of racing boats and the finishing times.” As well as the serious boats there were plenty of flash winged paddles on show.
George McCallum was representing the Royal West and came in 9th with 2:18:53, beating his target time and coming 2nd among standard sea kayaks. This is an excellent result, and although it’s a great effort by George, it won’t surprise anyone to hear that he’s determined to do better next year!

George was fairly closely followed by 2 of our GKC friends – Chris Bell 11th in 2:20:45 and Andy McManus 12th 2:22:54.
