The following checklist will help you plan everything for your race:
The Geoff Sanders Trophy
The Geoff Sanders Trophy is a series of races (“the Series”) in single and double junior racing kayaks for paddlers aged from 8 to 12 years. The boat used for singles races must be a Lightning- a stable, single, racing kayak. The boat used for doubles races must be a mini K2. Both the Lightning and the mini K2 are excellent, stable boats in which children can develop basic paddling and racing skills before moving into full sized racing boats. Both boats are also used in competitions at sprint regattas.
Regional Marathon Advisers are elected within each region by its marathon-racing clubs.
The purpose of the Adviser is to assist in all matters relating to marathon racing in his/her region, but especially with regard to the Hasler and Geoff Sanders Trophy series. A fuller description can be downloaded here.
This decision is expected to be ratified at the MRC meeting of 18th November and implemented from 1st January. If you have any comments or questions please email the MRC Secretary.
Clubs interested in hosting the National Championships in future years are invited to come and talk to Dan Seaford this weekend
Towards the end of last season, a number of new rules concerning K2 classes were introduced. These are now incorporated into the new handbook and include the modifications to start lists. The changes to rules previously requiring combining of races also modified in July/August are incorporated too.
There has been some discussion recently about competition ‘day tickets’.
The sole purpose of such a ‘ticket’ is to provide temporary insurance cover to take part in an event, normally issued by a race organiser in respect of their own competition.
