The penultimate race of the series was hosted by Leighton Buzzard CC and was thankfully free of the snow experienced at Leighton Buzzard's first Winter Series (2018) or the ice which caused the cancellation of the 2019 event. Even the rain held off until the race was over.
One hundred competitors took part.
The final race in the series will be held at Leaside on 9 February, when all the perpetual trophies and series awards will also be presented.
Chelmsford put out their biggest team of the series to date for their home race, bringing the total entries to 126 paddlers. The line up included Chelmsford stars Keith Moule and Emma Russell who each won their respective races and were the fastest paddlers over the 8 and 5 mile courses.
The penultimate race of this series will be taking place at Leighton Buzzard on Sunday 26th January.
