It is our:

Club Sprint and Slalom on

Sunday 22nd May

Starting at 10:00am!

  • Open to all, regardless of age and ability!
  • There will be refreshments afterwards, provided as ever by Jean.
  • A full day’s fun paddling at our boathouse on the River Ancholme
  • Sprint along a short straight course
  • Slalom around poles suspended over the river

We will hold the sprint in the morning, starting around 10:00 am, while we are setting up the slalom course

The slalom will start as soon as the course is ready, hopefully getting the first run in before lunch, and the second run in after lunch.

And don’t forget, there are certificates for the winners in lots of different age categories (and 2nd and third place too, if we get enough entries) and these events count towards our overall club champions for the year!

Don’t worry if you haven’t done this before, there will be plenty of coaches around to help you along!

Finally, help is appreciated in setting up the slalom course. We will be there from 8:30am!

See you Sunday!!

Sprint:

For the sprint, you paddle as fast as you can over a short course, about 100m or 200m (we’ll decide the distance on the day depending on the weather). You take it in turns and we time you from start to finish and your best time counts (you get two goes). You can use the boat you normally paddle, or try one of our faster sprint boats (If you use one of these, to make it fair your time will not count towards the prizes, so perhaps do one run in each!). You can even enter in a two man boat or canoe as well as kayak!

Here is Kristian in last year’s sprint:

Slalom:

For the slalom, you paddle as fast as you can over short course with lots of twists and turns. You have to paddle though “gates” which are two poles suspended from wires over the river. If you touch a pole or go through it the wrong way, you get time penalties added to you time! As with the sprint, you take it in turns and we time you from start to finish and your best time counts (again, you get two goes). You can still use the boat you normally paddle, or try one of our faster slalom boats (If you use one of these, to make it fair your time will not count towards the prizes, so perhaps do one run in each!). You can even enter in a two man boat or canoe as well as kayak!

Here is Katie in last year’s slalom:
