2021 Sprint Racing Handbook
The Canoe Sprint and Paracanoe IP statement follows the previous statements of 12th February and 30th March and provides very important updates to the policy published in December 2020.
The covid-19 situation in Europe continues to increase uncertainty over the appropriateness and ability to attend early season International events if they go ahead at all. The IP continue to monitor the prevailing risks and landscape for competition and are grateful to the DCMS exemption which provides very strict criteria that if met is the only way that would currently permit a GBR team to attend International competition. The IP wish to provide updates on the April Regatta, the European qualifier and World Cup 1 selection, plus the Junior and U23 selection.
