Although there were five National Championship medals won by the Club, Toby Booth’s 5th place in Under 14 K1 (out of 28 entries) and Joe Fitzpatrick & Heidi White’s 9th place in mixed K2 (out of 58 entries) were the outstanding results of the weekend, beating many crews who on paper were faster than themselves.
Well done to all who raced - the Club finished in 17th place overall out of 54 clubs. It would be lovely to break into the top 10 next year with a larger attendance from the Club.
