The clubs 6 Mile K4 Challenge took place yesterday with 2 Teams competing, In Boat 1 were Joe, Abbie, Mike and Laurence, in Boat 2 were Nicole, Andy, Oliver and Paul. And the winners were Nicole, Andy, Oliver and Paul. Well done.
11 of our juniors turned out for the annual K4 challenge this Saturday. This did mean we only had 2 competitive boats but everyone took part with thanks going to Paul Banfield for filling the spare seat to get the 3rd boat out. The crews were decided upon and after some brief discussions, the seats decided. In boat 1, Lewis Andrews took the front seat, Conor Simmons in 2, Sophia Fernandez in 3 and Louis Greenwood in the back seat. In boat 2, Alexander Riley took the front seat, Louis Brierton in 2, Izzy Fernandez in 3 and Millie Pepper in the back. Christina Vassiliades and Agnes and Esmerelda Kokina were also present but unfortunately without the 4th seat filled were unable to take the star
Cold and windy conditions made the penultimate Feathered Blade event of 2017 very challenging, especially on the Brayford where the wind was very gusty and funnelled under the road bridge. Unsurprisingly, no records were set and most paddlers received a reduction in their handicaps. The Three Mile event is pretty well sewn up with Lewis Andrews having an unbeatable lead. With each paddler's lowest score of the year being discarded, the most Dave Mylett can improve by at the final event is 4 points, which would make him equal with Lewis if Lewis scores nothing. In the Six Mile event, Ben Quittenton's win moves him up to third place overall and Lewis Smith's second place puts him in the lead,
