At its May meeting, the MRC discussed the issue of paddlers not wearing club vests at the Elmbridge Assessment Race, following the rule change at the start of the season that made this compulsory.
Following feedback from athletes, we recognised that the rule change had not been communicated clearly enough to justify a disqualification for those not complying at that event. As a result the results have now been re-published to show all finish times as well as placings. The full results of the Elmbridge Assessment were also taken into account at the selection meetings to decide teams for the German National Championships and World Cup.
