BSUPA round 3 Swansea results

align=”center”>Well, again Stoked with the conditions, seems like my prayers were answered again this time, akin to the BKSA event in May.
Saturdays BAEFEST went off superbly with a Finale of the BSUPA Bay 6k and the  surfers chain world record attempt

The conditions were overcast with a Light to moderate NW breeze which slightly hindered the 16 strong Paddle crew  as they Paddled across swansea bay from Mumbles, heading towards Swansea Baefest festival site approx 6.7 k away at 4pm on saturday afternoon.

The race soon spread with Jock patterson Charging ahead of the pack followed by Adam England on a unofficial 15ft Starboard, by BSUPA rules. The conditions looked still from shore but reports from the safety boats mentioned a side Chop from the massive 13m tide that day.

Bay 6k

As paddlers came to shore Jock Patterson still lead and decided to put in a few extra paddles in past the last marker – but even this was not enough to allow unofficial Adam England  to gain 1st .Andrew Wickens officially 2nd and Matt Argyle put in a great paddle  finish for 3rd.


Unfortunately The race was overdue to start  at 4pm and 3 paddlers were unable to start the race on time -(Nick watt, Mark slater and Jon parker)

Mark put in a fantastic performance catching the crowd 4 minutes after the official start and finished a amazing unrated but timed 5th.
