Last weekend's Doctor race in Perth ended with one of the tightest finishes ever as Tim Jacobs and Bruce Taylor charged the finish; TJ did the business as the two men ran up the beach to claim his first victory in the race.

Tim Jacobs and Bruce Taylor hit the beach together in one of the closest finishes of any surfski race - phenomenal when you consider they'd just raced for 27km and an hour and forty minutes! Here are some great images of the finish from Malcolm Peacock - and a video clip from Rambo!

Bruce Taylor lead for almost the entire race today – but Tim Jacobs pulled alongside and the two men took the same wave into the beach and it came down to the run up the beach...

For the first time since 2006 (2004 if you’re talking line honours), and ahead of the two previous winners of Sydney’s most prestigious race, Tim Jacobs has won the Epic Kayaks Twenty Beaches in style. In doing so, Tim has taken out the first ICF World Series event held in Australia and has taken a clean sweep in the 2010 Bing Lee LG Oceanseries in association with Epic Kayaks.

Tim Jacobs made it 5 from 5 this weekend, winning the Manly Wine King of the Harbour in perfect conditions, on what he describes as one of his “favourite courses in any race in the world”. In winning race 5 in the Bing Lee LG Oceanseries, in association with Epic Kayaks, Tim has set himself up well to defend his Dubai Shamaal title this week. Murray Stewart and Dave Smith, who came 2nd and 3rd respectively, will join the contingent of challengers from around the world, looking to knock Tim off his perch.

Tim Jacobs cemented his position as the leader of the Ocean Series with his fourth straight win this weekend in the Bing Lee LG Epic Kayaks Ocean Series Race 4 Narrabeen Downwind Challenge. A clear victory against a tough field sets Tim up perfectly for his campaign to win an unprecedented third Dubai Shamaal in a row. The question now is, at the pointy end of the season, can Tim keep up his form, and can anyone beat the crocodile-riding champion?

The third race of the Bing Lee LG Ocean Series in association with Epic Kayaks got off to a great start on a picture perfect Spring day. The Pacific Ocean was flat with a very light 7km NNW wind on a .5 meter NE swell which meant the race direction had to be from Bondi to Watsons Bay.

By 10:30am this morning there were 150 weary, windblown but satisfied paddlers waiting for the prize giving in the relative shelter of Governor Phillip Park at Pittwater. Conditions for the 2010 Alto Land Rover Lion Island Challenge were tricky to say the least and even the most experienced paddlers were tested.
