Hare & Hounds

The racers have been taking park in a series of races over the winter at Wey Kayak Club in Guildford.

This series is based on a time trial format with the slowest paddlers starting first and faster ones later with the aim of everybody finishing at the same time. It is a very exciting event in which no one is left behind on the water. A paddler’s finishing time for one race becomes their start time for the next.

Our newest, youngest paddlers take part in the ‘Dash Hounds’ which is 5km. Sophie completed it in her K1 & Henry has taken part in most of the series in a mini-K2 with volunteer race coach Wendy.

Our older juniors and veteran racers have taken part in the ‘Hare & Hounds’ which is a 10km race up and down the river Wey from the clubhouse at Wey Kayak Club, with two portages in Guildford town centre and turning in front of St Catherine’s lock.

Well done to all of those who have completed over the series, with congratulations going to Sam who won ‘most improved Junior’ over the whole series.
