The first day of the World Cup ran relatively smoothly for the team.
I was third in my heat of the K1 1000m to Adam Van Koeverden of Canada and Jernej Zupancic of Slovenia, all of us within .6 of a second of each other.
Then mens K2 of Mike Walker and Steve Ferg won their heat of the K2 1000m comfortably in a time of 3.17.
In the K1 200s Erin Taylor was 3rd as was Steve Ferg.
In the K1 500s Steve and I both progressed through to the 500m semi finals on Sunday comfortably.
The womens 500m heats were postponed until tomorrow morning due to highs wind that came up this afternoon. Incredibly the wind and waves picked up so much that in one of the C1 races only three competitors crossed the line with the rest submerged and swimming home.
