2015 White Island Race

The 2015 White Island Race was held in challenging conditions last Saturday.

Anticipation of a great race was heightened this year with the entry of two surf boats from North Beach in Christchurch alongside familiar faces from South Brighton and local athletes from St Clair, Brighton and St Kilda.

Overall winner on the day was Zac Quickenden (Surf Ski) who had a blinding start off the beach and then had two much nous chasing runners home for the Open Mens Surf Boat from North Beach.

Second place went to the Surf Boat with New Zealand Kayak team member Scott Martlew from South Brighton also on a Surf Ski taking third place.

Winners of two trophies on the day were the St Clair Masters Canoe Crew of Graeme Newton, Peter Haslemore, Greg Page and Rob Creasy who finished six minutes ahead of the second canoe to finish from Brighton.

First board paddler home was Nathan Wolf of St Clair who finished 30 seconds behind the first and only female ski paddler to finish Lucy Matehaere from St Clair.

The first female board paddler home was Viv Conway from Mount Mauganui LS.
