BCU Sprint June & MacGregor Paddle 2013

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!).

Everyone contributed to the results achieved and were flexible and willing to paddle with anyone possible in order to gain points for the club. A great result, thank you to everyone. Looking forward to September (it had better be nice weather!).
Well done again, fantastic achievement and a lovely bunch of paddlers and parents. Fran xx
