A bit of an unfortunate end to the British Open weekend for me. Following a bit of illness on Friday, I still had the speed and was the fastest by 4 seconds on the semi final. However the judges had deemed that I didn't go through the upstream gate 10 and even following a protest the 50 second penalty remained. Judge for yourselves in the video in the post before. The complicated bit is that I still managed to race in the final for the ICF ranking race as only 7 ICF ranked paddlers were racing so in theory I made the top 10 for that. But my result wouldn't be included in the British Open final. 5 seconds quicker than the rest of the field in the British Open final and ICF final shows I'm on form for the World Champs in 2 weeks time. I'm still a British Open champion too.....the veteran one! Pays to be a bit older now!
