K4 Race Day 
– a bonanza turn out!

Sunday 1st October saw Reading Canoe Club’s second K4 day of the year. Whereas the April one had been surprisingly quiet, less than ten boats, October’s set a record – a total of 40 boats. That was from 10 different clubs, some travelling from as far as Cambridge. What love for K4 racing!

Although Reading Canoe Club didn’t have so many of our boats on the podium, we did enter nine boats all together across the six start lines. It was great to see so many junior boats out, going at it with gusto and getting that feel of synchronicity!


Top performing boat was in Race B2 – juniors Fran, Sam B and Rory with Dave S giving a helping hand – winning 2nd.


Even the weather was fine. Thanks so much Brian – we all had a great racing day. Thanks, too, to our gardening chefs, Catherine and Dominique, who made the delicious pumpkin soup from that crazy-sized pumpkin!
