Lloyd Woolman raced the river five times on the week

The 16-year-old skied in unlimited inboard social and junior social on Saturday, as well as in the junior expert and F2 expert yesterday, winning the junior social and junior expert events.

He also observed for Moama’s Billy Barnes in the tadpoles under 10 class on Saturday afternoon.

The last of those events came yesterday, skiing behind Thunder Storm in the F2 expert class, with his dad Gavin driving and Moama’s Neville Barnes observing as the team finished fifth in a time of 41:09.

‘‘It was a good run,’’ Lloyd said.

‘‘The going was pretty hard, but everyone was happy and the boat held together.

‘‘We were sort of hoping this morning that we’d have a good run, which we did, so it all went according to plan.’’
