Whilst most of the racing team were away at Gailey and Cambridge, we had 2 representatives at the Elmbridge Assessment Race. Racing over 20 km against the best marathon paddlers in the country, Lewis Smith and Patrick Mongan had respectable finishes in the junior section of 16th and 17th.
Although little interest was shown from any other clubs in the Midlands region for the Duathlon event held on Sunday at the club, Lincoln put out a strong showing of 16 competitors across the 3 races. (click onto picture to view the full results)
4 youngsters took part in the Lightning race.
After a good performance in the run, James Lambert entered the transition first but Conor Simmons got away in front and opened up a bit of a gap to defend in the paddle section.
Evan Oliver finished 3rd in the run with Louis Brierton 4th.
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.
