Saturday saw the annual running of the Rocket (junior K4) to Banbury and back.  This is a great challenge for the U12 paddlers, to do the 9 mile round trip, as well as working on co-ordination and co-operation!  They did have a lot of fun along the way,  powered by jelly babies!

It’s a good warm-up for this weekend’s Ross Warland Canal Challenge – a 20 mile time trial from Cropredy to Aynho and back.  Paddlers from all over the country will be taking part – either to beat the time, or just beat the challenge of paddling that far.  Good luck to all – there’s hot soup and plenty of cake at the end to make it all worthwhile!
