On Saturday, 33 boats headed south on Higley Flow in the annual ‘Round the Islands’ Canoe Race. The fastest time of the day was posted by Jim Plumley in the men’s kayak race. The award is presented by the family of C.M. Palmer in his memory. The race is a family oriented activity. Following the race, many competitors traded their paddles in for the pedals on a pedalboat to compete in the pedal boat slalom.
