The Anchorman 2008 winner is: Dominic Henry of Mauritius.

Dominic Henry - Anchorman 2008!
Dominic Henry - Anchorman 2008!

Keen paddler!

I met Dominic two weeks ago during my trip to Mauritius to check out the proposed course for the 2009 Mauritius World Cup.

I can tell you that he's an ultra-keen paddler - he came with us when we paddled the 30km race route.  I can also say that he needs to do some training before Dubai!!

Mauritius time is 3 hours ahead of South Africa so no doubt he is peacefully sleeping while I write this - we'll try to call him in the morning to find out how he feels about winning the biggest giveaway in the paddling world...

What has he won?

  • Flights and accomodation for himself and a buddy (would that be his wife perchance?!)
  • Awesome activities in Dubai - like snow skiing on the world's largest indoor slopes
  • An 8kg Epic V10 Super Elite to paddle the Dubai Shamaal - and to keep

Congratulations to our 2008 Anchorman!

And thanks to the Dubai Shamaal Organisers...

And thanks again from everyone in the sport to the biggest sponsors in surfski today - the organisers of the Dubai Shamaal and the Southern Shamaal races.

(And thanks to everyone who participated - those who entered and those who sent in their entry nominations to help with the draw.  Dominic Strano sent the first email that was timestamped 8pm - he nominated entry number 634, which was Dominic Henry's entry number.)
