Last year we were successful in winning the Yorkshire Lightning Cup. This is a series of races for under 10 years and under 12 years racers. We use Lightnings which are a stable racing boat. We have a small fleet of the boats and people do enjoy paddling them.
The races are linked to the Yorkshire Marathon series (open to all ages!) and are normally two miles long.
This year’s races are:
|Calder 1||Sunday 1 April||Pennine Canoe Club||Race start postcode
|Brigg||Sunday 22 April||Glanford and Scunthorpe||Race start postcode
|Derwent Mike Jones||Sunday 3 June||Kingston Kayak Club||Race start Postcode
|Calder 2||Sunday 8 July||Pennine Canoe Club||Race start postcode
|Malton||Sunday 15 July||Malton and Norton Canoe Club||Details to follow|
Andy Lowthorpe and myself will be going to a number of these and will be pleased to offer advice and coaching. Please contact us if you wish to attend.
