A new strategic plan for British Canoeing

A chance to have your say

Final stage survey

We are now in the final stages of developing the strategy for canoeing for the next four years. The plan has been developed from extensive consultation over the past four months to which you contributed and have played an important role in helping to shape this final draft.
The plan sets out the direction for the whole sport for the next four years, to make the sport stronger in 2021 than it is right now – to build on our existing strengths and address the challenges and opportunities .

It presents our purpose, vision and ambitions; together with measures and actions. There are national actions for the UK areas of the sport as well as the English delivery work of British Canoeing, plus suggested regional actions and club/centre actions. The measures will have clear targets set in the final draft.

We do hope that you will take part in this final consultation. We recognise it is long – so please feel free to answer the sections that are most interest you.

Pre-Season Notice for Race Organisers and Team Leaders

Team leaders, race organisers and paddlers are reminded that:

  • Entries should be made using HRM using the most recent Ranking List where at all possible, as this will enable up to date rankings in most cases
  • The rankings on the official results, published on the MRC website, are the ones to take note of (all other results are provisional only)
  • D? notices on results need activation by team leaders via RMAs if they are appropriate, before they will be applied. They are NOT automatic.
  • Applications to adjust published rankings should be made by team leaders through RMAs with appropriate evidence
  • Race organisers – The completed HRM file with results should be forwarded to your Regional Marathon Advisor (RMA) by the Tuesday after your event with CC to the Ranking Officer, the Race Records Officer & Jo Bates
  • Also please note the addition to the recommended start order:

With the addition of Div 3 K2, an adjustment to Rule 4 is necessary as show below. A further review of the recommended start order is taking place and in some circumstances, organisers may have good reason to make adjustments to the order to avoid races interfering with each other. It is strongly recommended that sufficient time gap between starts is allowed, to minimise the effect.

Rule 4a)   The following is the recommended start order. Not all these classes will necessarily run at any one race.

Division 1 K1

Division 3 K2
