Report by Team Manager, Brian Greenham
The German National Championship is an open event and part of the ICF World Series, attracting many of Europe’s top marathon racers. A young GB team of U17s and U23s was selected from the assessment race at Reading, to ‘race up’ in the junior and senior classes and gain international experience.

The levy to be charged on all paddlers checked in irrespective of whether they start or finish the race.

Devizes CC are organising a Hasler test race at a new course on the Avon at Chippenham. Details can be found here: Continue reading “New Hasler ‘test’ race at Chippenham, 19th May”
We take part in sport for the personal challenge; with that come great highs and great lows. Tragically, last weekend the Devizes to Westminster race amplified that. Whilst the race, as ever, created heroes and heroines of all who took part; this year the very worst happened when a paddler lost their life in the last few miles.
Stan Missen, Chair of the MRC said “ Our paddling community is a small world, and this is a devastating loss. All our thoughts are with their family, friends and fellow paddlers.”
