June’s Racing Results

Posted on 7 July 2011

Congratulations to all who took part and the great results from the June regatta as 4 Leaside paddlers took top 3 finishes in their disciplines!!!

Edvinas Ramanauskas finished 3rd in Men’s A/B 200m

Tadas Cizas came 2nd in Men’s A/B 200m, 2nd in men’s B 500m and 3rd in men’s B 1000m

Luke O Bryan won men’s C 200m and 500m races and came 3rd in men’s C 1000m. Luke has now been promoted to men’s B.

Alan Goode won masters A 500m and came 3rd in masters A 1000m

Leaside also held a successful Sprint Regatta on June 12th. Despite torrential rain, 21 paddlers turned up to take part in the days racing. This was a great opportunity for paddlers from the racing section to meet with paddlers from the recreational section of Leaside.

The most fun part of the day was the K2 racing which saw the less experienced paddlers teaming up with the racing paddlers to test themselves over a 100m course.

The rain failed to dampen spirits as the day ended with a BBQ on the balcony.

We are now looking forward to racing at the National Club Sprint Championships in Nottingham on the 2nd and 3rd of July, where 16 paddlers, both junior and senior will be taking part. We have had a successful months racing and are looking forward to a busy July !
