It is apparent that for one reason or another a very small number of the 50 or so British paddlers competing in this years event had complaints about their categories or numbers prior to the race. The MRC are in discussion with the BCU Competition Manager to try and ensure that in future all British participants provide (fully) the correct information requested, it is clearly presented to the race administration and that everyone achieves the entry they desire. He aim will be eliminate all issues in the future years. It should be noted that a new race administration team were responsible for entries in Spain this year which may also have contributed to some of the problems that arose.
