We must be doing something right!

There’s been a lot of moaning lately about Prem and Div 1 races being fully subscribed. We ought to look at the other side of this: our Prem and Div 1 races are better attended than at any time in the past 25 years. Maybe longer, I have only been around slalom that long.

Old hands will tell you about races with over 100 K1Ms on the start line. What they forget is that, in those days, they’d be lucky to have 20 K1Ws and 20 C1s. There were no C1Ws (apart from a couple of hardy souls paddling against the men) and there never were many C2s.

Now we can expect up to 80 K1Ms, and 40 K1Ws, and 35 C1Ms, and 25 C1Ws – 180 boats. What a great "problem" to have!

Get Reinstated

Used to paddle slalom? Reckon you could still kick .....? Why not get reinstated and race again? Or you'd like to have a shot at another class, or you're just a good paddler who's never got into slalom? Here's a form to make applying for reinstatement/ranking easy.
