The following morning, the 'jet lag' was so bad that many of us were very tired, had sore heads and couldn't seem to walk in a straight line. Thankfully, we managed to get all (or most) of the larger out of our systems relatively quickly and were ready to hit some stouts!
Following the start of the fest, a big night at 'Beanies and Bikinis', and some questionable behaviour by some of the group, it was time to race!
The pressure was on as I was out of the gates first, but I placed a time of 2 minutes 20 seconds which put me second place in the ladies competition, and more importantly, second place in the British competition!
This was my first attempt at slalom, but won't be my last... as long as I can find other races with waterfalls in the middle.
