Dash Hounds Report – 19 Feb 2012

Well, after snowfall a few weeks back the final Dash Hound / Hare & Hound race took place. We were treated to another lovely day – very spring-like, even the adults thought it was warm! It was another excellent turnout from the juniors who are now very familiar with the race and set about getting ready and warming up. Once again, in the Dash Hound, there were some excellent performances with many kayakers produci

Thameside 1 on Sunday 19 February was brilliant. Richmond, I am sure, had more paddlers on the water than any other Club – 11 K2s and 4 K1s.

Dash Hounds / Hare & Hounds – Race 4

A New Year and another race in the Dash Hound / Hare & Hound series – Race 4 and, as usual, a good laugh.

One or two paddlers were maybe lacking a little in fitness after the Christmas break but it was another very good turnout. The conditions were perfect (but that might depend on your po

Hare & Hounds Two

The second in the Dash Hound / Hare & Hound series took place on Sunday 27th November. The weather forecast the night before seemed quite promising – a grey start but sun to follow. First thing, the skies were steely grey and heavy showers were also part of the mix. But the forecasters were spot on and by about 8.30 the sun began to emerge. By the time the Dash Hound was due to start at 10.15 the sky was clear an
