... well, not quite a blast. The conditions actually couldn’t have been better  with enough of a breeze to kick up some white horses and keep the pros entertained but gentle enough that paddlers of almost all skill levels could have a go.

Two hours into the race, just 4km from Cape Point, the 8-man pack hit the hit the kelp beds and everything changed. Hank McGregor and Dawid Mocke lurched to a halt, their rudders caught on the thick rubbery stems; Tom Schilperoort, in clear water, accelerated away, rounding the Point a clear 100m ahead.  A good gap for the downwind leg but would it be enough?
