Well done to all the Elmbridge paddlers that made an effort to sign up & race at the Maidstone Hasler, we certainly had a larger than usual team and the sun even shone!! Racing for the 1st time in Div 9, Sam & Amber did exceedingly well 12th & 13th and weren’t put off by the large group on the start. Brooke in Div 8 came 10th & in Div 7 James & Robert were 4th & 7th James gained a promotion to Div 6, well done James !! Sean in Div 5 did well to finish his race having not raced this year due to other commitments. Our Div 1,2 & 3 K1 paddlers were on fire, with Philip in div 1, Bruce & Richard in Div 2, & George & Stefano in Div 3 all taking 1st & 2nd spots. Our K2 paddlers were racing in Div 8, Kellie & Wendy didn’t get the best start but made up and finished 2nd with a promotion to Div 7, Georgina & Georgia were 3rd. Elise raced with Renee Myburg ( Royal CC) in Div 3/4 coming 4th, well done as they were the only junior girls racing among mixed crews. Lastly our only lightening paddler Erica came 4th in her 1st K1 lightening event, hopefully this will be her 1st of many.
Brilliant racing & results don’t forget we still need you to race & get those points as it is very close with the top 2nd,3rd, & 4th places . Next race is Royal Hasler Sunday 22nd June- sign up on the noticeboard.
