Slalom success

Early October, a small, perfectly formed group of RCC paddlers entered an end of season Division 4 and Open competition at Sharks Canoe Club. Harefield is a lovely little setting and fabulous autumn sunshine set us up for a great day out on moving water!

Matthew Perry did brilliantly, easily topping the table in Div 4 K1 men, winning him a nice commemorative T-shirt and a promotion to Div 3.

Jake Didcock also did really well and was tied in 3rd place in the Div 4 K1 event and also gained a promotion to Div 3.

A long way out in front of the K1 Women’s Open class was Emily Neville, who also won herself a new t-shirt. More importantly however … the prizes were all being handed out by slalom superstar Mallory Franklin (Tokyo Olympics C1 sliver medalist).

Well done, Team Reading!

Emily, Matthew and Jake
