Congratulations to Dan Palmer who last weekend was awarded the Young Volunteer Award from British Canoeing South West. 

Dan has been an active member of Fowey River Canoe Club for many years and is a keen marathon racer. Dan has been seen to represent his club personally and has had many great achievements, For example winning the junior doubles twice and the mixed junior doubles twice at the Devizes to Westminster race, and he also represented Great Britain as a junior at the French National Marathon Kayaking Championships. 

Dan has helped to encourage all club members to exceed their own expectations. He also shows great enthusiasm, dedication and energy towards the sport and to Fowey River Canoe Club. He regularly coaches new members of the club and helps to coach junior paddlers into becoming successful racers, whilst also supporting his peers and older members of the club during training sessions and races.

Fowey River Canoe Club would like to thank Dan for his long term commitment, dedication and support and would like to further congratulate him for his well deserved award.
