The overall results from the 2022 HIPA races for the final standings for the season based on points is out. They also published some photos from the Yamagata Race and I’ve put a few of our paddler’s photos on here.
It was a great season with lots of races, and when it comes to accumulating points you’ve got to get out on the race course as much as possible. To qualify you have to do at least 4 races in the same course length and division. Let’s get more club members out on the course. It’s a great leaning experience and excellent training – not to mention fun.
LONG COURSE PADDLERS
M-OPEN: Tyler placed 1st and managed to nudge out Jose (2nd) for the top OC1 Open spot with a mere 1 point separation between them. And right behind them was Kama in 3rd who was unable to make as many races.
M-40’s: Kyle racked up a 4th overall even though he and Keola only made it to about 1/2 the season’s races. Keola ranked 10th and saw great time gains throughout his first long course season.
M-50’s: Eric was 2nd
SHORT COURSE PADDLERS
W-40’s: Kawai crushed it in 1st
M-50’s: Grant took 1st followed by Rodrigo in 2nd
M-60’s: Jeff took 3rd followed by Garry in 5th and Warren in 6th. (Unfortunately either there was an error or Greg didn’t do enough races to qualify).
M-Novice: Loren took 2nd which is a great way to start OC1 racing!
Mix-OC2: Tyron & Crystal hammered to 2nd
