The Yorkshire Marathon season is here again

Just to remind you that the Yorkshire Region events are fast approaching and it would be great to get Kingston paddlers along to them.

Remember distances are 2 miles for the U12’s and 3 to 4 miles for all others just starting out. We have specialist boats for the U12’s – try them out on the outside pool.

They are all on Sundays:

26th April Brigg
Organised by Glanford and Scunthorpe Canoe Club – close by just across the Humber Bridge held on the River Ancolme

17th May Malton and Norton
Organised by Malton and Norton Canoe Club – upstream on the River Derwent from Malton

7th June Derwent Mike Jones Memorial
Organised by Kingston Kayak Club – upstream on the River Derwent from Barmby on the Marsh near Howden

21st June Calder
Organised by Pennine Canoe Club – the River Calder near Dewsbury

4th October Wolfreton
Organised by Kingston Kayak Club – Frodingham Beck and the upper River Hull

Remember there is no kit hire fee as you are representing the club.

In addition there will be the Yorkshire Sprint series coming again – dates to be confirmed. Dave Jefferies, the Regional Adviser, is also hoping to arrange a junior Development squad.

Any questions ask Julian, Lesley or Claire on club nights.
