A rather chilly Sunday morning saw our novice paddlers enter their first race after only a couple of months experience on the water. This was a handicap “Hare and Hounds” race in which 115 boats competed over 10 kilometers, from our home base at the Wey Kayak Club, Guildford, to St Catherine’s Lock and back. All our boats did amazingly well, comfortably exceeding our expectations, finishing in impressively quick times and thus doing very well in the overall competition.

It was wonderful to see so many satisfied grins, with everyone seeming to be enjoying the experience. A great turn out of family supporters helped egg the paddlers on, and several Old Cranleighan paddlers who were also competing, were there to pass on tips and advice.

Things look very optimistic for the National Schools’ Championships next week and indeed the rest of the season.
