Longridge Canoe Club members have been selected to represent the Great Britain squad at the European Championships for marathon canoe racing. The event this year takes place from 29th June to 4th July and will be held in Pontevedra, Spain.  Of the15 seats in the GB Team, Longridge is filling two well deserved slots.

Selected for the K1 under 23 Women’s category we have Alex Lane. Alex has already set a new womens record earlier this year for the 200km non-stop Devizes to Westminster Canoe Race, that time in a K2 crew. Can’t wait to see what further successes she will achieve.

Andy Daniels also makes the squad for the Senior mens K2, he’ll be paired-up with Tim Pendle from Norwich Canoe Club.  They were looking impressive in assessment races last weekend.

Exciting times continue at the club.
