Avery Wilkins tackles the Highway Gates kayak course in Abbotsford during the third and final Icebreaker Series races

Kayakers carve water at Icebreaker finale

The third and final round in the Icebreaker Race Series saw several kayakers paddle their way to first place finishes.

The third round of the Icebreaker Race Series was held last weekend in Abbotsford.

Hosted by the Chilliwack Centre of Excellence, kayakers hit the waters of the Highway Gates course.

Isabel Taylor completed a sweep in the cadet women’s single-person (K1) kayak event, edging Anya Flueckiger.

First place finishes were worth 10 points apiece. Taylor won all three races in the series, finishing with 30 points and the division crown.

Austin Atkins finished first in the cadet men’s K1 race, edging Finley Capstick. Capstick held on to the divisional crown though, racking up 28 points in three races.

Atkins was second with 25 points, and Avery Wilkins was third with 22.

Maddison Atkins completed a three race sweep of the junior women’s K1 division, out-pacing runner-up Lauryn Cheung.

Rhys Taylor and Clinton Hugh battled to the end in the junior men’s K1 division. Hugh won the final race, but Taylor took the division with a 28-18 edge in points.

Kelsey Allenby owned the senior women’s K1 division, winning two of three races to finish the series with 28 points. Jasimie Harvey was second with 10.

Jon Allen took the title in the senior men’s K1 division, though he didn’t have any competition.

Darcy Wilkins and Nigel Floyd tied for first in the masters men’s K1 division, each with 23 points.

The CCE offers paddling programs 12 months a year and holds their AGM tonight.
