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.
Glasgow KC’s team of U12 paddlers managed to hold onto their commanding series lead with another strong performance at the Hasler Finals, to take the 2017 Geoff Sanders Trophy with a massive 1,010 points.
Banbury were second with 902, and Norwich third with 616.
