We wish all our prospective GB paddlers good luck in the forthcoming time trials over the weekend of the 16/17th March. 

We went out on a recent Sunday with 19 paddlers plus both Mel and Dave, with them swapping drummer and steering roles halfway; we also counted 7 paddlers not there that day; there will always be someone who cannot make it for all sorts of reasons, but we now look like we have a critical mass that will enable us to train with more or less a full boat each time we go out, so let’s try and build on this and keep it going as we approach the new season.
