The club fielded a team of 16 paddlers for this event: someone in every division except Div.6. Other clubs from our region taking part were Royal, Wey, Maidstone, Tonbridge and Hastings.
Philip won Div.1/2 (combined) Glenn 4th Richard 5th
Kayne came second in Div 3,
Ross won Div 4 (Paul 3rd, Tim.B 5th)
Luke was 4th in Div 5 ,
Becky Solway was 4th in Div 7 and won the prize for highest placed junior lady. Excellent performances also from Jenny and Rebecca W. Both suffered mishaps but didn’t give up!
Steve and Ben worked together to take 1st & 2nd in Div 8 (ie Ben sat on Steves wash all the way round then beat him at the end) .. both were promoted !
Our new racers in Div 9 ( Georgia, Georgina and Archie) all finished without mishap after a chaotic start. Four miles is still a long way for them, but they all finished and scored points for the club.
The final reckoning on the points brought Tonbridge out on top, which was no surprise as they really were out in force) Wey second and Elmbridge 3rd (only one point behind Wey).
We scored well on our singles, but had no doubles: Wey scored heavily with their K2s perhaps not as well as us on their K1s. We need a good representation of both K1 and K2 at our next regional race, Maidstone on June 17th.
