Welland 2017

Welland – Nationals Day 2

After 2 days of k1 competitions we are all very proud of our teams results.

Alex Canning is having an exceptional regatta in U17 with a Gold medal win today in the 1000m K1 race. He took home  a silver medal yesterday in the 200m K1 and also a very impressive 4th place finish in the 6000m race. Ian Gaudet has also started out the week very well especially as a 14 year old racing in U16 and making finals in both his 200m and 1000m races with  4th and 8th place finishes respectively. Thomas Cox also made the 200m final today which meant all of the Banook team members racing today made it to their finals – which is a huge accomplishment for our club.

Tomorrow we start crew boats for both the men and women and have a very full day of races. Be sure to check out the live broadcast of the races on the CKC website. The commentators are doing a great job at covering each race from start to finish. Here is the link to the site:

The draw is also available on the CKC website.  The U17 mixed War Canoe will be one of the top races to watch and it is at 12:11 Halifax time so it doesn’t even interfere with your work day J.

Cheers,
Michael

Hello from Welland – Nationals Day 1

Tuesday Morning – August 22

Just a quick update from Welland, Ontario.

First I hope everyone is aware that despite many of the coaches competing here at the Nationals programs are still running at the club this week including kiddie canoe for our youngest athletes.

The trip with the boats was long 1900 km in 27 hrs which included a 3hr nap and a brisk walk in NB (ran out of gas 2km from a gas station).

Most have arrived at this point and we will have practice at 10:00 for everyone. The parents are all working well as the support team making sure the team is well fed and happy. Today the weather is looking a bit windy and the possibility of rain for ourh 4 K1 races but the rest of the week is looking better. 

 

Good luck to our athletes competing at the Nationals in Welland!

Banook is excited to be represented by such a strong group of paddlers at this year’s Canadian Sprint CanoeKayak Championships in Welland, Ontario.  We hope everyone has a personal best time during their races this week!
