Thames Valley Hasler 24th July 2011

Well done everyone who participated in the Thames Valley Hasler. Although this is not a regional race for us, (we don’t gain points) nonetheless it is a lovely stretch of river and a race we like to support.

The weather caught most of us unprepared, as lotion was definitely needed, with the heat increasing by midday. Luckily Pam was on hand, with her sun lotion, making sure all the younger paddlers were not going to burn.

Some great results and promotions Andrew Marken and Matt Connell coming 1st and 2nd in Div4 and promoted to Div 3. Stef di Grigorio came 1st in Div 8 along with Nicole and Amy Dawes (4th and 5th) and were promoted to Div 7. Phil Thorogood was 3rd in Div 1, Luke Bowyer was 3rd in Div 7 and Tim Bowyer and Oliver McDonnell were 2nd, in their K2, in Div 5. ( also promoted!)

Thanks to all the parents who gave up their Sunday to transport and support the paddlers ( although most also brought newspapers and sun-loungers).
