Brothers and current Senior and Junior World Champions, Sean and Kenny Rice, dominated the results at the 6th race in the Cape Town Summer Surfski Series powered by Vodacom, The Naturals Camps Bay Clash. Sean took first place overall with Kenny taking first place amongst the junior paddlers.
“We had near perfect conditions for today’s race, with a big shore break. The course ran along the base of the majestic 12 Apostle’s and then back again,” explains Dawid Mocke. “Just over 100 competitors started the race this morning, with some strong competition for our local paddlers from the foreign athletes from France, Holland and the USA. An increasing number of overseas surfski paddlers are travelling to Cape Town to train, race and experience our conditions. In the seniors, Sean Rice, was in indomitable, however Jasper Mocke put on a good show in his first race in the series with a 2nd place position.”
“I really enjoyed my win today. It was a nice confidence booster for me after an unsatisfying Dragon Run last weekend in Hong Kong,” says winner and current World Champion Sean Rice. “I’m glad to feel back on track and looking forward to a few more solid weeks before my final 2 races for the season – the Cape Town World Cup and The Fenn Cape Point Challenge.”
Nikki Mocke maintained her series lead in the ladies division by beating Bianca Beavitt in 2nd position. And junior paddler Kirsten Flanagan proves yet again she will be a force to contend with by narrowly coming in 3rd place after Bianca.
The Cape Town Surfski Series, powered by Vodacom, consists of eight races and the next race of the series will be held at Kommetjie Beach on Sunday the 1st of December.
