DW Statement

We take part in sport for the personal challenge; with that come great highs and great lows.  Tragically, last weekend the Devizes to Westminster race amplified that.  Whilst the race, as ever, created heroes and heroines of all who took part; this year the very worst happened when a paddler lost their life in the last few miles.

Stan Missen, Chair of the MRC said “ Our paddling community is a small world, and this is a devastating loss.  All our thoughts are with their family, friends and fellow paddlers.”

Junior Development Squad – C1 paddlers

For clarification, C1 paddlers are also invited to join the JDS if/when they meet the qualifying standards.  The eligibility criteria are one division below those required for K1, therefore for C1 paddlers that would be:

U18 boys – Div 4

U16 boys – Div 5

U18 girls – Div 5

U16 girls – Div 6
