CLBC paddlers make a splash at In2Kayaks 2012 Junior Avon


 Sprint Regatta 2 February 2013

 We sweltered through very hot and still conditions for the fifth and last regatta before State Champs with everyone enjoying the swim at the end. Our paracanoe-er Kathy Mallory competed in a 200m sprint for the very first time and achieved one of her aims by staying upright and finishing the race! Good on you Kathy!! Great to see everyone out there is in club colours. Stay focused as we start the countdown to States. Good luck everyone!

Paddlers: Ben Smith, Caleb and Gabby Bushby, Harriette and Emmerson Alexis, Jamie Drewry, Jack Cappendell, Daniel Bowen, Tristan and Hazel Turner, Ellie Berger, Tom, will and Bec Robinson.

CLBC teams did so well in this year’s Junior Avon . Team Muvfasa of Jack Cappendell, Daniel Bowen and Jamie Drewry came second in a heartstopping finish, losing by 10meters over 15km in the Under 12 guppy category! Tristram and Hazel Turner and Ellie Berger came an equally impressive second in their class and Team Robinson, with 2 of the 3 paddlers having only done 2 previous training sessions, winning their class! Caleb completed the distance in the doubles teams category with another Ascot member Time Feasy and did really well as did Harreiette, Gabby and Emmerson in the Under 10 guppy class. The icing on the cake for the day was for Jack Capependell winning first prize in the lucky draw, an impressive In2kayaks ocean ski!!

Thanks to all the parents who helped with the many jobs on the day and for the on water support for our paddlers.
