SRC ACM Motion and the Performance Department

Message from Alan Laws (SRC Chair and MRC Vice-Chair)

“The Sprint Annual Consultative Meeting at the September regatta debated an issue concerning the relationship with Marathon, the clubs and the Performance Department. It was carried out in a calm and objective manner.
Following that meeting it has been arranged that Myself and Stan Missen, Chairman of the Marathon Committee, will meet on 28th September with Albert Woods, British Canoeing President, Peter King, new CEO of British Canoeing and John Anderson of the PD to discuss the current situation.
News from that meeting will be sent out as soon as it is possible.
The purpose of this item on the websites of both Sprint and Marathon is to make it clear that the matter is ongoing”
