Sunday's event (Div 2 / Pan Celtic / English Champs / Inter-regionals)
is now full - actually it is slightly over-full but to be fair I have
accepted all the entries I received up to and including the weekend.
Any further entries will be added to a waiting list and accepted in
order of receipt if there are any drop outs.
I will get an updated list of entries received up later this week and
try to maintain list of those on the waiting list.
Saturday's Prem race is currently only half full. Prems please note I
have a lengthy list of paddle ups pending, so get your entries in to
secure your place!
I know those that don't get a place will be disappointed, but I have
limited water time to get everyone down the river! (less water than we
have for the imminent Div 1 race).

There will be no paddling
officials runs, but I will be looking for demo/forerunners.

If you are ranked in Division 1, 2
or 3 you can enter races for the next Division up from your own.
Take the opportunity to experience bigger water and compare yourself
with higher-ranked paddlers!
But please note: The "host" divisions for any race (Div 1s at a
Div 1, Div 1s and Div 2s at a Div 1/2 and so on) have priority over
paddle-up entries until two weeks before the race. Until then, the
organiser can't confirm that you have a place, however early you got
your entry in.
