Regatta Report

The sprinters experienced a lovely weekend in Nottingham which ( as you all know) is very rare with gentle tail winds and a beautiful blue sky (well, at least on Sunday).

Of course, there was a bit of algae in the water but people were willing to overlook this fact as all other conditions were close to perfect.

All Reading paddlers did very well in this Regatta but as it was the Junior National Championships I have listed some of the best results below. Considering that we only had 5 juniors entering this Regatta we had some fantastic results. We also had a complete newcomer in this Regatta, Laszlo, who joined us on Sunday for the 500m coming second in his Final.
