2015 Avon Challenge

Under 10 winning teamUnder 10 winnersFour teams of guppies and juniors represented the club in the 2015 Avon Challenge, a relay running from Middle Swan Bridge in Caversham to Riverside Gardens in Bayswater. This event is a precursor to the major race, with the winning competitors in the Avon Descent arriving only an hour after the junior paddlers finished, making it very exciting for the children with big crowds and media representatives present.

All of the CLBC paddlers preformed well in sunny conditions, with our Under 10 team of Raffi and Kobie Good Gerne and Boti Kaplan winning their category.

Coach, Agnes and club members, Mitch Hale, Owen Pickett and Robyn Brown escorted the Under 12s and Under 10s along the river.

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.

There was also a talk from from a physiotherapist, Andrew Hayden,  about the benefits of kayaking for seniors. Club members mingled with the group and explained what it was like to belong to the club. Everyone enjoyed afternoon tea delights cooked by the CLBC members.
