Congratulations to both Toms on their club awards. Tom Bellard earned his award for his Hasler marathon results in his first year of paddling & Tom Lusty for his GB national sprint kayak selection & achievements. Onwards & upwards!

Four hardy club paddlers, Oliver, Ryan, Becky & Ben set off in the rain on Good Friday for the epic annual 125 mile Devizes to Westminster race. And it rained and rained some more until the race was called off at Reading after 54 miles because of the Thames flooding. Oliver and Chris were in the lead of the C2 class & raised £1200 for the Brain Tumour Charity. Ben & Alex raised £600 for Dementia UK. And well done to all of you.
