Covid restrictions in place, all spectators banished to the prom side, our first of two K4 race days took place on 27th June. How lovely to have a taste of normality again.
There was a high demand for boats – with 38 entries in total from nine clubs, and a record number of 7 in Race A, the fastest group. Well done Reading for drumming up 13 great crews. All paddlers raced with gusto. It was a great day.
Huge thanks to Brian, as ever, who put all the leg work in, supported by an enthusiastic team of volunteers. Special thanks to Nik T stuck out on the safety boat all morning, rain or shine.
