Reading K4 Entries (Updated 21/09/2018)
K4 race day – always the best of the year – and just like usual, Brian had arranged clear blue skies and, hurrah, minimal wind. Everyone loves K4 race day.
Twenty nine boats from 12 different clubs competed in the five races, each one split according to the speed of the paddlers.
The Juniors were on winning form: Freddie, Daniel, Jim (not Junior!) with RLS Philip Miles came in first in Race A. Fran, Sam B, Jarvis and Rory took top spot in Race B. Bruno, Annabel, Toby and Immi (not quite junior!) came 2nd in the Rocket race, while Reading took 3rd (Chris B, Conor, Danny and Matt) and 4th (Debbie, Vicky, Timi and Nikki) in the C1 race. Thanks Matt A for jumping in last minute to the Vets boat.
Well done to all who competed. It was a great day, with just the right balance of competition and having fun.

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!
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!
