Angie Jackson has just taken out The Doctor Downwind Race in Perth, Western Australia! This is Angie’s second Doctor title, while her time this year was also a new race record. Defending champion Jake Jensen finished 3rd, 8 minutes off the pace of the leaders. Paul Jackson finishing just 2 seconds ahead of Sam Parker from Sydney and is ranked 5th now. There were more smiles for Jacko just 15 minutes later: His wife Angie Jackson completed a stellar downwind run across the strait to take the women’s title. Angie finished her crossing from Rottnest Island to Sorrento in a time of 2:36:43, which was 6 minutes faster than today’s runner-up (and 2013 Molokai-2-Oahu champion) Terrene Black. Angie’s time was also just a few minutes outside the Men’s Top 10. It was a two-horse race for most of the 27km channel crossing from Rottnest Island back to the mainland!
Angie was pretty thrilled with her win, she was paddling the 2015 production version of the Falcon 14′ x 24.75″.
Angie: “The Doctor: I felt amazing today and it was just one of those good days:-) Congrats to Beau on his 1st place as well. Thanks to all my supporters and sponsors. Time to rest and get ready for next weekend’s King Of the Cut downwind race. Love the 2015 Fanatic Falcon 14ft, amazing board to downwind. Well done to my hubby @supjacko on his 4th place! »
