Raft Racing

Dear Paddler

We had 7 paddlers racing at the British Rafting R6 National Selections race at Lee Valley White Water Centre the weekend of 8th/9th December.

A massive well done to our Men’s team who came third in the Masters category with only 5 paddlers, and to two of our ladies who were racing with the Red Rose Rafting Team and came 3rd in the women’s category.

With the selection results now in, we have 8 paddlers selected to represent GB at next years European Championships in Bosnia. Congratulations to Andy Steel, Peter Wortley, Simon Hale, Paddy McNulty, Steve Bellamy, & Ossie Higgins (who was unfortunately ill on the day) for being selected as GB2 in the open men’s category, and Steph Roberts & Beth Kirby for being selected as part of Red Rose Rafting Team

Well done to everyone that raced over the weekend, and we are looking forward to seeing more new faces when we start back in the new year.
