Prognosis 'awesome!' at Doctor
Former and present Burnie paddlers had an amazing outing at the 2019 Shaw and Partners Perth Doctor held last month. Competitors included Georgia Laird (2nd Elite Women), Tom Norton (5th Elite Men), Sam Norton (13th Elite Men), Jeremy Norton (7th Over 50), Greg Stubbs (9th Over 50), Adrian Norton (5th Over 60) and Cameron Taylor (51st Over 40).
Competitors raced over a 27km course spanning from Rottnest Island to Sorrento Beach in perfect conditions. Adrian Norton was quoted as saying "it is the best paddle back I have ever done!".
The day prior, Georgia smashed the women's elite field in the Shaw and Partners Elite Sprint Event at Sorrento Beach. Georgia held off her Australian Women's Double Ski Championship partner Danielle McKenzie, and Jordan Mercer to take the cash and first place - nice work!
Well done everyone - awesome effort!
