The MRC has a two-stage plan for developing a new race management system to succeed the HRM, which is being withdrawn from this coming weekend (6/7 October). This is being led by Tom Sharpe and Dan Seaford.
A new, temporary Excel-based system has been developed from scratch, and will be tested over the three remaining Hasler race weekends this year with support for race organisers. A race entry sheet for clubs that fits with this system will also be available after this weekend.
Tom and Dan are undertaking a review of the longer term needs of our discipline, and will ensure that a full and comprehensive solution for race management has been robustly developed, tested and put in place in time for the first races of 2019.
Please bear with us while these changes are put into effect. Race results, promotions and demotions may take a little longer than usual to be published.

The DW Committee and the Marathon Racing Committee are working together to promote a set of “classic” marathon races, which can be used by prospective DW paddlers and their support crews to better prepare themselves for the challenge.
We are also very keen that more races should be promoted in the north of the country. Hence the races being organised by Pennine Canoe Club, Canoe Scotland and Runcorn Canoe Club.
