Isabelle C, Yazmin and Jess made a clean sweep of the u16 Girls K1, taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. In the 16+ Ladies race, Octavia was 1st Vet and Lexie was 1st Junior, while Catherine won 1st PaddleAbility. Emilia took gold in u14 girls K1, and Eilidh was 1st girl in u12 K1.
Amongst the boys, Little Joe again put in another good performance in the Men's Open and was rewarded with silver. There was another well-deserved silver for Chris in Men's Vet. Luke continues to go well in u14 boys and achieved bronze. Silver medals for Paul & Richard completed the day's winnings.
