Slalom Appeal


During the last 12 months - the Friends Group has successfully raised £1000 to help the club increase competitiveness in Canoe Slalom, and introduce more people to the discipline.

The money will pay for:

  • a new C1 Slalom canoe
  • the shortening of 4 existing K1 slalom kayaks
  • a set of competition standard paddles
  • 5 new neoprene spraydecks (1 x C1, 4 x K1)

This will help the club to compete more effectively at BUSA and other national canoe slalom events,  because they will have a more up-to-date fleet of K1s (to take advantage of the new rules regarding boat length), and a new more competitive C1 which will also help introduce more people to a less common and more profitable (in terms of BUSA points) discipline.
