Had an awesome day on the river with Sam a month before the Coast to Coast, hit the paddle on the day with a lot of confidence.Well worth it!!

A great day out on the river, pretty much the most important part of my race preparation - and I made sure that the spot I fell out in during practice didn't claim me on the day!
