Tim Jacobs wins Perth Doctor for the second year

Report by Robin Mousley

It was anything but what the Doctor ordered…. but at least the 10kt side-wind kept the paddlers cool as they raced from Rottnest Island direct to Sorrento (taking about 2km off the usual course).

Conditions were fairly flat, although there were small bumps to work with for the elite paddlers out front.

Tim Jacobs was in the front bunch from the start and made a move about 16km into the 24km race, taking a 100m lead. 

In the end he proved too strong for South African Jasper Mocke who came second…

The top 5 were:
1. Tim Jacobs (Aus) 1:50:10
2. Jasper Mocke (SA) 1:50:44
3. Dawid Mocke (SA) 1:51:54
4. Michael Booth (Aus) 01:52:20
5. Bruce Taylor (Aus) 01:52:46

The women’s race was easily won by Ruth Highman in 02:15:36
2. Claire Duncan (Aus) 02:24:02
3. Kylie Broad 02:35:01
4. Tricia Gilbert
