It's that time of year again! 

Many of our paddlers at Fowey River Canoe Club have been taking part in the first two (of four) races in the Waterside series. After the first two races the club has seen some great overall series results. 

We have two crews in the senior men K2 category, the first of which is Dan Palmer and Ryan Pearce who are currently coming third in the series with a time of 04:11:42. Our other senior crew is Michael Southey and Harry Gilbert who are currently placed sixth with a time of 04:16:09. Well done all. In the junior men K2 race we only have one crew this year, Matthew Collinge and Thomas Steer, who are doing extremely well and are currently placed first for the series with a time of 04:33:50. Great Work!

It's not just all about the boys this year, we also have a few of the ladies from the club who have entered the races. This year we have a junior ladies crew of Alice Bray and Zoe Hurrell (a paddler from Addlestone canoe club) who are currently first in the series, with the next junior ladies crew 40 minutes behind them. Alice and Zoe have a current series time of 04:55:30, great work girls. Chloe Dobbs has entered the series in K1 this year and is doing well with a current time of 06:09:35, she is currently coming third in the junior ladies race. That's not it for the girls as we also have Lena Kraus who has entered the series in K1 and is currently placed second in the senior ladies race, with a time of 05:21:56. Well done all and good luck for the next two races in the series.

Some of our club members have not entered the series but have also had some great results for the club. 

John Edyvean has had some partner changes but came seventh in the mixed K2 race with Emma Riley at Waterside A. John also came fourteenth in the senior mens K2 race with Steve Riley at Waterside B. Which was a good result seeing as this is the first time the have paddled together. Benji Cabrera is our youngest paddler to enter the race this year, only 12 on the day of the race, he had a good result with a time of 02:29:26 at Waterside A. Well done Benji a great result for your first ever Waterside race. Last but not least, well done to Ally Parritt who despite swimming four times also completed her first ever Waterside race yesterday at Waterside B. Well done Ally!

Congratulations to all the paddlers who entered the first two races and good luck to all of the paddlers and support crews entering Waterside C and D.
