The Varsity College Marine Surfski Series have come to an end yesterday at Durban, with the overall victory of Hank McGregor after claiming victory too at race number 10. No surprises, then, but all after probably the colsest finish of the series, with 5 boats arriving in just 20 seconds. McGregor leaded with his Umkomaas victory partner, Grant van der Walt, second and Matt Bouman third. Out of the podium were very closed behind Brandon van der Walt and the surfski star Sean Rice. Another top paddler, Len Jenkins Jr., didn't have his best day and lost about two minutes with the leader, arriving behind the first double boat of Mark Mulder and Dwayne Power.
At the same time, in a separate race, The SA School Surfski Championships were held over the same course for the U18 and U16 categories. The new South African champions are: Kenneth Rice (Men U18), Kerry Segal
(Women U18), Louis Hattingh (Men U16) and Amy Hare (Women U16).
