Warwick Draper caused an upset in Eildon claiming his maiden open C1 national title in 99.86 well clear of the field.
3-time Olympian, Draper showed his versatility with the win in a Canoe. He will contest Kayak finals later today in which he is somewhat more familiar.
Ethan Hodson was 2nd in 109.95 and Robin Jeffery third with a time of 110.36.
Brodie Crawford impressed once more as the fastest junior in 111.39, finishing ahead of many of the senior paddlers.
Finals continue today with Women’s K1 up next.
