July 2018 Ironbridge Hasler race

Marathon
Ironbridge Hasler
 
Team Solihull had another good race at ironbridge on Sunday. There were 9 racers and all placed in the top 4 of their divisions. They came second in the Midlands points competition for the race which almost guarantees that they'll be invited to the national Hasler series finals in the autumn. 

Jackfields rapids destroyed another kayak this year, but the Solihull team got through safely despite having 2 "first time" racers in the team. Well done Kevin who came 4th in Div 8 K2 with Julia. It was Ethan’s first comeback race for years & he got 3rd in Div 7 K1. The best finisher was Ben who came 2nd in Div5 K1. John came 4th in Div7 K1 (good to see you racing again), Ellie & Alex came 3rd Div7 K2, and Becky & Liz got 4th Div7 K2. Well done again team Solihull!

Just when you think the weather for racing couldn't get better, it did! And Solihull turned out in force, coming second only to Worcester who had an even bigger team! Well done to Andrew who was promoted to division 7 despite it being his first ever race with a double ended paddle! Conrad and Julia won division 7 doubles, Alex and Ryan came second in the division 5 doubles and Michael and David won the division 9 canoe doubles. Everyone else picked up points apart from Pete and Anne who decided to participate from the river bank for the second half of their race and Mark who limped home with a helpful canoeist on a camping trip .

The Solihull racing team with members aged 17 to 70+ had a another fantabulous day of racing in the sun. There were lots of smiles & great results. Top marks to Becky & Liz who won the Division 7 doubles race in their beautiful new blue kayak. And well done to Mark & the Cooks who came 2nd in the Div 4 singles and Div 8 doubles. And team Cook, we thought you were under doctors orders to take it easy!  More valuable points were collected by Alex, Steve, Pete & Anne. It was great to see Steve, Pete & Anne becoming regular racers.
