 After an amazing week in Ottawa at the new race course across from the Rideau Canoe Club, our RHCC paddlers had a very successful National Championships.  This event was held over 5 days from August 25 – 29th.  On Days 1 and 2, most of the single events were held with heats in the morning and finals contested each afternoon.  Days 3, 4 and 5 were mostly team boat events.  RHCC sent 16 paddlers this year (13 youth and 3 Masters) compared to 10 paddlers last year (9 youth and 1 Master).   Our paddlers earned a spot in 14 finals with 4 medal winners!  Last year only 3 finals were contested and we had no medal winners.  Here is a summary of the results.  Detailed results can be found at:  Resullts

Our athletes’ dedication and hard work of the past year certainly paid off at this year’s Nationals. We must also thank our Head coach, Helen Savin, who has helped to make our club the success it is today.  We look forward to an even stronger showing in the 2016 season!

A special thank you to Jill Weston who has written up all of the race result emails!!
