We would like to invite you to the grand opening of a new jetty outside of our boathouse behind the Ancholme Leisure Centre. This will be held at 11am on Sunday 29th March. The new jetty has been funded by North Lincolnshire council community grant, Brigg Town council, Scawby Parish council and members of Glanford and Scunthorpe Canoe Club.
The launch coincides with our British Canoeing’s Yorkshire & Humber Region Hasler Marathon, that GSCC are hosting on Sunday 29th March.
The Hasler series is a club competition open to all abilities with 10 divisions of over 12’s to adult, and 2 divisions of under 12’s. The top two clubs in the region go through to the national finals in London. It is names after Herbert George Hasler whois most famous for leading the ‘Cockleshell heroes‘ in Operation Frankton, a daring commando raid on the French port of Bordeaux in December 1942 using canoes.
It is the first race of the year and we are expecting entries from several Yorkshire based clubs, as well as some “out of region” clubs like Lincoln. Along with a good showing of local paddlers, there should be a good sized audience.
Thankyou to everyone who has supported this project
