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!
