A field of eighty-five assembled for the Goodlife Geelong 10 km handicap from the Canoe Club to Fyansford and return. The wind fluctuated, making it a stern test of endurance. It was second year frontmarker, Vanice Kelly, who defied all efforts to run her down. Kelly’s margin was close to 400 metres from backmarker Grant Simpson with Julia Larsson ten metres away third. Katie Eisenhauer was easily the fastest female and Simpson was the fastest male for the tenth time this season.
