Cory Hill Wins At Pacifica Downwind


Fresh off his recent victory at Maraamu, Cory Hill took the overall win at the Pacifica/Fenn Downwind Race this past weekend at Coffs Harbour, Australia. 

Hill had to contend with a strong field that included: Jeremy Cotter(2nd), Sam Norton(3rd), Mackenzie Hynard(4th) and Mark Anderson(5th). 

The winning time on the day was 1:27.43 over the roughly 25 km course.


Prize money included $1000 and, in true surfski fashion, race sponsor Pacifica Canoe Club made an additional award available for the club with most entries to be awarded six cartons of beer--with the provision that they must be consumed on site.
