Marathon
2018 Anker Valley Hasler
A big Solihull squad raced the Anker Valley Hasler marathon this weekend. Well done everyone, especially those who don't usually race (John), those returning to racing (Jenni, Steve & Ryan) and those racing canoes instead of their preferred kayaks (Julia & Becky)! Top results were achieved by Mark who came 2nd in division 4 K1, Alex & Ellie and Jisimrut & Mehar who came 3rd in divisions 8 & 9 K2 respectively. Once again it was great to see Pete & Anne back on the water in their C2! Well done team, we earned the maximum points possible for the club. And Ryan, you're don't look like you're working hard enough for someone who was late for the start of the race!  

Burton Hasler race June 2018

Marathon
A historic event occurred at the Burton Hasler race when Pete & Anne Jones returned to competitive paddling in the division 9 event in their beautiful but heavy wooden canoe! If the weight of the canoe was taken into consideration, they would have won, but still achieved an excellent 4th position. Well done to you two. Top positions were achieved by Mehar & Jetta and Julia & Konrad in their K2's who came second in their divisions. And well done to other Solihull paddlers who gained valuable National Hasler club points. And it was another beautiful sunny day out!
