Upper Swan Marathon Results 21 June 2015

Congratulations to Brett Mc Donald in a K3 blitzing the whole field in the Upper Swan Marathon, a distance of 26 km, a long way to paddle! We also had club members Rod and Mitch Hale competing in single skis and Alistair Fox and Brett Watson in a sturdy double, all practicing for the Avon Descent on 1 August. Our juniors did really well in their events too with Angelina and her brother, Raffi, winning in a guppy K2. Harriette Alexis and Gabby Bushby coming 1st and 2nd in the Under 14 K1s.  Several other guppies paddled on the day- Angelina and Raffi’s brother Koby. Ben Trapski enjoyed his first race with Daniel O’Connor. Great work everyone.

Thanks to Brit for the photos.

Seniors at Kent St Weir

Group 2??????????????????????

On Wednesday 10th February ten keen kayakers met at Kent Street Weir.  This little adventure, paddling up the Canning River was organized by the Wednesday/Thursday Kayaking groups.  We were very happy that people new to kayaking had the opportunity to explore new territory.

It was very hot however, so being on the water was the best place to be.  We were delighted to watch the bird life particularly parent birds nurturing their babies.

Altogether we paddled about 8 kilometres and we all returned to enjoy a picnic lunch together.  It was a very pleasant day out.

Trudy Carly.
