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.

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.
