Naish Columbia Gorge Paddle Challenge 2016 (1)

 

Recap :

Remenber last year, there was no wind. This year, the Gorge turned on the best downwind conditions for the event.

Connor Baxter took his second victory on this event (the last one was in 2014) by winning both the Technical Race on Saturday but also the “Double Downwind Race” on Sunday !
An amazing thing happened in the Men’s Technical Race with the victory of Connor Baxter. In fact, Leonard Nika finished only four seconds behind Baxter, Mo Freitas finished 4 seconds behind Nika, Michael Booth finished 4 seconds too behind Nika and Trevor Tunnington finished him 5 seconds behind Booth.

 

Connor Baxter Naish Columbia Gorge Paddle Challenge 2016

 

Bernd Roediger finished the “Double Downwinder Race” in the second position behind Connor Baxter but only 30 seconds between them. A very good performance for this surfer & windsurfer who spend time in this region because he is Fiona Wilde’s boyfriend. Mo Freitas continue his good year and finished third, like during the Technical Race.

 

 

For the women races, Fiona Wilde, the Hood River local female finished the Technical Race in the third position.
Annabel Anderson finished the Technical Race first in a strong sun (more than 100°F), one minute later, Candice Appleby finished her race to take the second place.

 

Fiona Wylde Naish Columbia Gorge Paddle Challenge 2016
