Report from Fran Solway our Sprint Team leader:
As you may have seen the results are out for the June Nottingham and inter club MacGregor paddle. Overall we finished ninth which is a great achievement. To have a top ten finish is great (in 2011 we finished tenth). I was so very proud of everyone who paddled. there were some tremendous results in terrible conditions and we even had three promotions: Becky Williams and Nicki Dawes to Girls C and Stef Di-Gregorio to Boys B, well done all of you! We had some wonderful crew boats with Jenny and Becky S racing from K1’s to K4’s back to back (super subs) and Katie who paddled in a new type of boat called a vomit comet. New to Nottingham, Derek, Richard and Nick coped extremely well with the dreadful weather and confusing aspects of the racing; I am very proud of you all and it will all be much clearer in September (yes, Derek, we are expecting you to paddle again!).
