The Banbury Hasler race is being held on 25th October 2015, the day after Reading Canoe Club’s AGM. Sign up sheets for the Banbury race are up on the board. This is the last chance for a Hasler race before the winter. It’s a very different bit of water to most of the other races in our region so a great chance to experience a slightly different event. Please sign up on the board at the club.
The Henley Hasler race is being held on Sunday 11th October. It is a Southern Region Hasler event, so lets have another good turn out from Reading. Entry is team leader only, no late entry for divisions 4-9.
The Elmbridge Hasler is being held on Sunday 4th October.
Embridge is within the South East region, so no Hasler points will be awarding for Reading. However, it is just over an hours drive from Reading and would make a great training race for all those that don’t want a weekend off. (Perhaps we have some people looking to do their first K1 race in division 5?) Entry is team leader only.
The first Hasler race in the Southern region for the 2016 season will be held by Pangbourne on Sun 13th Sept. Check in is team leader only.
Details of the Longridge Hasler race on Saturday 29th August are available on Longridge Canoe Club’s website here:
This is the last race for individual paddlers to qualify for the Hasler Final. Reading paddlers please sign up on the sheet at the club by Wednesday 26th.
This year 5 clubs will qualify for the Hasler Final from the Southern region. With an 11 point gap and only 1 race remaining, the following clubs will therefore qualify for this year’s Hasler Final: Falcon, Banbury, Longridge, Reading and Southampton.
The next Southern Region Hasler race is at Longridge on Saturday 29th August. As well as the National Marathon Championships, there are a couple of other races of interest coming up…
Medway Marathon – Sunday 26 July 2015
A 17.5 mile race on the River Medway from Maidstone to Tonbridge, Kent. Organised by Tonbridge Canoe Club.
Richmond Hasler – Sunday 2nd August 2015
Within the London & South East racing region, so not a Hasler qualifier for Reading, but only an hour away from Reading.
The 2015 Hasler Final will be hosted by Banbury and Falcon canoe clubs near Oxford on 20th September 2015.
All Reading paddlers qualified should sign up on the sheet at the club or send entries to Evan by 2nd September. No late entries.
(Based on provisional results from Thames Valley Hasler.)
