Saturday 9th November 2019

The Piney Lakes Metro Series event was held on Saturday afternoon with courses set by first time MetrO series setters, Michael and Patrick Dufty (pictured above). They came up with some interesting and challenging courses and also did a substantial remap of the area. The weather forecast was for a sizzling hot day, however the sea breeze came in early enough that the temperature had cooled rapidly to much better running weather by the start of the event.  

This week Hunter Giles-Shanley had a clear lead in the short course ahead of Amy Dufty and Ken Brownlie. Zali Dale managed to edge out Ron Marcus to take the line honours for the medium with Nick Dale taking 3rd, while Sten Claessens again took the win on the long ahead of Craig Dufty and Andries Swart.
