We recived this email from Steve Hicks, should any of your members wish to take part in the Devises to Westminster (either to race or just take part) this looks like a great rescource for anyone wishing to undertake the challange.
I found your details on the BCU website and was wondering if any of your club members might be interested in doing the Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Race at some point?
If so, it would be really great if you could share the details of a website I've made which will help out anyone wanting to prepare and train for the race.
My husband and I took part last year and have made a website to help out other paddlers who are new to DW. As we gained a huge amount of knowledge by preparing for the race we wanted to share this information with anyone else who might be interested in taking part in future.
Following on from the recent ECA Meeting, the subject of engaging women in paddlesport was raised, the Essex Slalom squad currently has a "This Girl Can" program which is running. Russ Smith has kindly sent through the attached pdf which clubs may find of interest.
