Part deux of the the Chilliwack Centre of Excellence’s Icebreaker slalom flat water slalom kayaking series was a chilly affair at Hope Slough in Chilliwack Saturday.

Snow fell as contestants gunned for the best time making their way through gates, around dangling trees and through a few sludgy sections.

In the second of the three-part racing series, Isabel Taylor took top spot in Cadet K1 women, Finley Capstick won in Cadet K1 men, Maddison Atkins prevailed in Junior K1 women and Rhys Taylor won in Junior K1 men.

The final race in the series, which was to have been held just off the Interprovincial Highway between Chilliwack and Abbotsford Sunday was postponed till April 6 because of the snow.
