We are shocked and saddened to hear that Alistair Collier is missing at sea. He was taking part in a GB Outrigger Canoe Association race off the Dorset coast yesterday, and is still missing. According to media reports, the search has resumed today, led by the Coastguard and involving RNLI lifeboats and the police. Alistair is a valued member of the club and a keen paddler.
I don’t have any further information on the circumstances. We can but hope he returns safely. Our thoughts are with him, his family and friends.
Please DO NOT drill a hole in your new key card. It will stop them working.
Club key holders should be aware that the rear entry door has changed and that their existing key will no longer work. New keys can be exchanged for old keys by contacting Fess – who will be at the Club on Sunday morning at 9am or Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday and Friday evenings from 5pm until 6pm.
The Worcester Ring Challenge is our 15 or 20 mile circular event through the beautiful Worcestershire countryside. This year it is on Saturday 14 July 2018 and entries are open. You can speed round (the record in a K1 is under 3 hours) or cruise it. It’s a challenge either way. Racing boats, open canoes, SUPs, tourers, sea kayaks, everyone is welcome.
Just a reminder there is a handy link to the Environment Agency website over to the right. Their Barbourne River Guage shows the current and recent level and Robin’s River Rising Ready Reckoner tells you what it means – can you see the stage, are your feet wet or Pitchcroft underwater?
Still unofficial, slightly updated as some lightening results were missing, as were some of the K2s. Sorry. The official results should be up on the Marathon Racing site shortly.
