Firstly I would like to say a big thank you to Exeter Canoe club for hosting the first race of the 2016/17 season, and a big well done to all Fowey paddlers for their amazing results last weekend.
It was almost medals all round with Dan Palmer placing 1st and Michael Southey placing 3rd for division 2. In division 3 Matt Collinge took first place and earned himself a promotion to division 2. Ryan Pearce placed 3rd and Steve Riley 4th (Both also in div 3). In division 4 Thomas Steer took 1st place with Harry Gilbert close behind in 2nd. Martyn Collinge and Alice Bray also did very well (1st and 3rd place respectively) in division 5. More promotions were seen for Brian Greenaway and James Asser who both did very well i division 6 last weekend (2nd and 3rd respectively). Caity Irwin came third in division 8 and also warned herself a promotion to division 7.
Well done to all of our paddlers (including the ones not mentioned above) and thanks to all of your tremendous achievements Fowey River CC came first for overall club points. Lets try and keep this up for the rest of the season, and good luck to everyone for the Hasler Finals next weekend.
