It was a good day, thank you everyone for coming and providing such great competition all round. Thank you to those competitors in both sets of races who sacrificed their race to stop and help those who capsized; and of course, thank you to all our volunteers; without them the event could not happen.
We must apologise for the extended portage; unfortunately we have to rely on the goodwill of other river users to give us exclusive use of any particular area. Sometimes there is not much goodwill. Apologies too, to those whose results we are still trying to rectify.
It was good to see so many members turning out to race, and a very promising start to the new Marathon Racing season. Congratulations to all our new young recruits who were racing for the first time .Welcome on board kids !
The club achieved some good results, three 1st places, two 2nd places and three 3rd places , to mention but a few.
Well done to our four junior boys in Div. 2. They took the first four places and adding in Tom’s and Richards points in the same race, we scored a massive 99 points in Division 2.
Four of our paddlers were promoted Oscar Hynds and Kristina Kovacs from 8 to 7 , Leo from 6 to 5 and George Durden from 4 to 3. Great results for some our new members !
We were pleased to hear that so many of our visitors enjoyed their day at Elmbridge ..and were kind enough to let us know.
