Our wildwater paddlers, Rob, Jack and George raced at the Welsh Open at Llangollen at the weekend. They were only able to do the classic on the Saturday, as they valiantly came back to compete at the club’s Hasler race on Sunday. The fields were small, but it was good experience over the course, and all three went well, with Rob finishing 2nd overall, and Jack and George the first U23 and U18 respectively.
With the racing in the morning, there was the opportunity to practise further in the afternoon, but not for George, who’s boat was by now needing a few repairs. With water levels low, there was more opportunity than ever to hit rocks, or ground the boat!
