We are delighted to announce that the 2021-22 Hasler season has started, from 1st September. The inter-club Hasler competition and paddler qualification rules will re-start from the first races of this new season, with qualification towards the 2022 Hasler Final in September next year.
Hasler races will now be available to enter through the new Race Entry System
The start of the season will see one rule change: the first in-region boat in each division will earn 50 points (100 for K2s/C2s), with points decreasing by one for each position as usual. The reason for increasing the points is that some start lines see over 20 paddlers, so there will still be points to race for below this position. There will still be a 110% cut-off time, where paddlers outside this time will earn a single point.
An organising club and venue for the 2022 Hasler Final have been proposed – confirmation and announcement to follow.
The Standards for Racing table compares performances and times with Sprint and Marathon rankings, and the Handicap system.
It is used in the marathon race management system to guide promotions and demotions, with promotions to Div 3 and above decided by the MRC Rankings Officer, Roland Lawler. Coaches and paddlers can use it to understand and compare sprint and marathon rankings and potential performances.
STANDARDS FOR RACING (use for marathon racing)
Every time you enter a Hasler or other big race, some of your entry fee pays for something called the “Racing Levy” – but why do we have it, and what does it pay for? Read on to find out more.

The announcement of a British team to compete at the French National Marathon Championships is being delayed until early August following the change to the date of the Olympic Hopes regatta, which concerns many of the same athletes and now clashes directly with the French National Marathon Champs.
The MRC and British Canoeing are organising an online workshop on Monday 16th August, 7.30pm to discuss changes to BC memberships, and how to enter marathon races. Continue reading “Marathon clubs workshop – BC memberships and race entry system”
