The influx into the borough of paddlers from other countries has seen an increase in the interest and the clubs participation in K1 and K2 descent racing.

Descent races are not a club event but are entered by individuals, that said each of these events attracts a real sense team spirit among the participants from the club.

Annual events in order of difficulty are as follows. In England the Avon (late Oct/Nov) and in Ireland the main event is the Liffey (early Sept).

Club members are always willing to share a cup of tea and recount there experiences and give advice (some of it even worth listening to) to anyone that cares to ask.

There are a number of national and international races that see regular entries from our members, if you are interested in taking this up or looking to get advise or a team together please ask around the club and you will be guided to our local experts for the race that you are interested in.
