Come along and support our paddlers taking part in these world Championships! Neil Marley is doing all four disciplines (swim, cycle.kayak and run) and Martin Heywood, Tom Shoulder and Shaun Burnett are doing the kayak leg as members of relay teams (sorry if I have missed anyone). We also have members who are also LincQuad members and are doing all four disciplines.

We will have a cake stall near our boathouse (which is the finish line). We may need help with that (contact Michelle).
We also need coaches to provide safety cover for the kayak and swim legs. Please contact us if you can help with that.
