Unlike the hot April of last year, our paddlers taking part in this Aprils regatta had to contend with a cold north wind on both of the days. Cagoules, hats, paddle gloves & spray decks were definitely the paddlers choice of clothing for the weekend.

All our paddlers taking part did extremely well in their races, with some very close finishes, especially between Amy Ward & Rebi Simon in  Girls A. In the Womens A K4 500m Louisa Sawers was part of the crew to break a new course national record of 01:35:94.
