MacGregor 22 Paddle Report
Top 10 for Team Southampton Canoe Club.
What an awesome weekend, we took our largest ever team to the MacGregor Interclub Sprint regatta over the weekend with 27 paddlers entered to take part in 83 races and what a weekend we had. Plus Congratulations to Lu becoming the Girls Intermediate Kayak Series Champion!! And Orla taking the silver medal in the Girls Mini Sprint B competition.
Our paddlers took on to race 200, 500 or 1000 meters with regatta regulars and new faces both taking on the challenge of seeing if we can get into the top 10 Sprint Clubs in the country for the first time ever and I am pleased to report that in the provisional results Southampton came 7th.
It was a hot weekend with close humid conditions, and with our racers racing from around 9am to 7pm it was a long day. We started with the thousand metre distance with several people saying it looked much further in a straight line.
Highlights of the weekend included Lu charging down the regatta lake with Xiao, jumping on a bike to charge down again in her K1 all within ten minutes, The Boys A/B K4 paddling the length of the course with only two paddles between them and the amount of smiles and friendly support in the Team SOU camp.
It was great to see Dan, Emily, Josie, Xiao, and Chloe making their sprint debut, and also to welcome back Charlie and Jacob after a break. There was an overload of Season Best and Personal Best results on what was not a fast course.
Top results were Andre and Nathaniel winning the Boys A K4 (with Joe and Huw from Nottingham), Sheila taking Gold in the Girls C 500. A clutch of silvers including Orla coming 2nd in the Mini Sprint B class, Andre in Boys A 500, the Men's K4 of Dan, Jack, James and Rob in the 500m, Beth and Poppy with their crew of Mille and Amber in the Girls A/B/C 500, Sheila in the 200m, and our Minisprint B K4 including Chloe and Orla, plus their crew from Banbury. Ben and Sheila complete the list by storming to 3rd in the Mixed C/D 500.
You can see the official results here
Congratulations to Southampton Paddlers Beth and Andre on their selection to represent British Canoeing at the French National Championships.
Congratulations to all our fantastic athletes competing at the National Marathon Championships over the weekend, some fantastic results including:
Andre Under 16 K1 National Champion
Beth Under 16 K2 Silver Medal
Orla Under 10 K1 Silver Medal
Canoe Sprint July 22 Junior and Under 23 National Championships Regatta
Excitement was high as the Southampton Canoe Club Sprint Team gathered at the National Watersports Center in Nottingham last weekend. This regatta sees the culmination of the years effort for our junior and U23 paddlers, and what a weekend it was.
Saturday dawned as a damp day with a strong headwind and our 10 athletes looked down the course expecting a tough event with the strength of the other competitors and the conditions to cope with. We knew at that point that we had to control the controllables and the rest will unfold.
The first day was a hard day with a downpour at lunch ensuring that our paddlers were wet from above and below, however the sun shone on the second day and a much brighter day for the weather and results dawned.
Success was sweet with Andre, Beth and Nathaniel winning national championship titles, Poppy was so close to achieve silver and Xavier and Beth bringing home bronze medals. But beyond the title races it was great to see some of our younger paddlers making an impact, with Elouise in Bronze position in the Girls Intermediate, and Orla setting up the next wave or Southampton Paddlers by paddling in the mini sprint classes across singles, doubles and fours.
Our next Sprint is in September for the MacGregor Paddle Challenge where clubs compete to win the Historic Paddle that John MacGregor used in his epic journey described in his book “A Thousand Miles in a Canoe”. We are hoping to bring a big team.
Racing is underway on the second day at the Junior National Canoe Sprint Championships. You can follow the results on regattaresults.org.uk/automenu.php
Good luck to Southampton Paddler Xavier Hinves, representing GB and racing at the U23 European Canoe Sprint Championships in Belgrade Serbia, this week.

They will be racing in their heat on Thursday 23rd at 15.40bst in race 55, with placings 1 to 3 going to the final and places 4 to 7 going to the Semi final

Canoe Sprint June 22 Senior and Masters National Championships Regatta
The wind blew will be the lasting memory of the 2022 Senior and Masters National Championship regatta at the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham, over the Queen's Jubilee Weekend. It will be seared into the memory of many of Southampton’s Paddlers with many stories to tell on how big the waves were, or how fast they were able to go.
Southampton Canoe Club was represented by 12 brave athletes who took on the conditions with Xav Hinves bringing home a Senior Silver medal, over 500m with the Four person Kayak that he plans to represent GB in later this month, whilst Damon Grimsey and James Hinves took silver in the Mens Masters O44 double 500m.
Meanwhile in the juniors there were some fantastic results. For the Girls, Beth, Poppy, Scarlet and Lou set a personal best each and in the boys Fletcher set 3 personal bests, Nathaniel 2, Ben 1 and first timer Sam across the board.
Key highlights of the weekend included seeing all of our paddlers cope with the conditions, including Lou and Scarlett, successfully keeping their double and four straight, when many others were being turned by the wind, and Ben and Sam storming all of their races.
There is now four weeks to prepare for the Junior National Championships in July with hopefully less wind and more medals to report next time.
Racing has started at the June regatta.
It's a bit chilly but conditions are good.
Great to see so many friends, both old and new racing in the Southampton Wild Water Race Yesterday. Its was a fab day and great to see so many paddlers taking their first paddle strokes on moving water.
Many thanks to Woodmill Outdoor Activities Centre for hosting the event, and to all of the hard working volunteers to making the race happen!
See you all again next time.
Fancy trying something a bit different? Race through the Historic Salmon Pool, challenge your skills to pilot your boat through the pool and weir as fast as possible?

This will help Xav, Nathaniel, Beth and Andre over the next year to develop their Paddling.
Ready to try something new? Southampton Canoe Clubs 2nd Wild Water Race is on the 12th Feb 2022
Two crews of Southampton Paddlers took to the Thames yesterday at the Reading Kayak Fours race. It is amazing how small the wide reaches of the Thames become when there are over ten K4s on the water! Both crews raced in a combined A/B race with one crew in each class.
The conditions were perfect when the starter said go, and a frantic flurry of paddles drove the boats upstream, by the first turn it was apparent that one boat was under-powered to stay with the lead pack, and going round the turn it become obvious that the older design boats we had borrowed for the event were much slower going around the turn.
Both boats finished the 10km race, and had a great time in what is now a rare opportunity to race fours, its great fun and it would be great to see some more Southampton Crews next year especially in the C, D and Rocket classes.
Many thanks to Chris Perry for the Video.
Good luck Beth! As she heads off to race at the Olympic Hopes Regatta in Racice, CZ. Beth has just returned from representing Southampton at the Macgregor regatta in Nottingham and what better way to top that but with representing GB abroad! This is the culmination of this years hard work and dedication and we trust there is more to come in the future.

What a Weekend
Southampton Canoe Club took 14 Athletes to race in the Macgregor Paddle National Canoe Sprint Regatta, and what a weekend it was! Everyone who raced achieved not only season bests but personal bests really valuing the hard work they have put in over the last year.
As the weather improved so did the performances, with Poppy Gilbert-Johns and Beth Perry taking 1st and 2nd in Girls C 500m with less than half a second between them, Sheila Cabarique winning both her Girls D K1 Finals and James Bourne winning Boys D 500m but congratulations should be extended to all for their enthusiasm and smiles. Nathaniel Lamb and his doubles partner Ed Butler from Nottingham Kayak Club won both the 200 and 1000m Boys C/D doubles races before adding the other Southampton boys doubles partnership of James Bourne and Fletcher Cramer to take bronze in the Fours 500m race
The first day was rounded off with a very social BBQ at the campsite giving the opportunity to see another Southampton Paddler race at the World Championships in Portugal. It was also Beths last race practice before going off to represent GB at the Olympic Hopes regatta later in the month.
The Macgregor Paddle is named after the godfather of British Canoe sport John Macgregor author of 1000 miles in a Rob Roy Canoe and his paddles are still used today as the trophy for this prestigious competition.

Southampton's Champion Canoeists
Four Hundred Paddlers from all over the country met in Nottingham for the National Canoe Sprint Championships over the 3rd and 4th July, on a warm but stormy weekend with some very fast times.
Southampton Canoe Club sent a team of 12 juniors and Vets to race in singles, Doubles and Fours over 200, 500 and 1000m and they came home successful!
Xavier Hinves competed in under 18 singles, and doubles with Partner Zac Tarver from Elmbridge CC. These races were over 500m & 1000m. He also took part in the 500m in a four and came home as National Champion in each race and now stands a good chance of being selected for international racing at the World Championships in September.
Richard Kent & Ade Butt raced in the Over 54 class and came home with a gold in 500m and 1000m Doubles, plus a range of other medals in the single events.
Andre Hinves, Nathaniel Lamb, Fletcher Cramer, Damon Grimsey, and James Hinves also came home with at least one medal. With most of the Southampton team scoring either Personal or Season bests.

June Regatta by the SRC
This weekend saw the return of Southampton Canoe Club to the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham, where over 200 athletes from 42 clubs competed at the June Sprint Regatta.
For some of the club athletes it was their first taste of competitive sprint racing for nearly two years, with the regatta operating under new measures put in place to ensure a Covid safe event.
The day was gloriously hot which made for fast racing conditions on a glass like lake, where athletes competed to see who was the fastest over 200, 500 and 1000 meters in single and double kayaks and canoes.
A small but successful Southampton group came home with three first places, eight personal bests and nine appearances in the major finals. Which hopefully will translate into success in next month's International Selections and National Championships.
You can see our day with the event live stream https://youtu.be/eUjPfy8qIOc

We Paddled, We Ran, We Cycled. This week we have resumed offsite club activity, had 2 online circuits sessions, zoomed through 3 ergo sessions, been bamboozled by a great thinking quiz (Who knew how heavy a pigeon is?) Plus we have taken part in our Un-Hasler race. We are looking forwards to seeing you all soon!
Although we are not yet ready to start introducing new paddlers if you would like to join us please contact us and we will come back to you as soon as we can.
The sun shone as the membership remembered how to take to the water this week, although we are not yet running club sessions or new member courses it was great to see how many people are out and about!
In addition this week we had the second round of our Un-Hasler race, with the leaders starting to show their prowess. Another fantastic quiz from PGJ tested our minds and gave us the chance to see each other. Circuits and the anything goes ergo sessions continued, with great thanks to Lucy, Emily and Tina for putting us through our paces.
Well what a difference a week makes. This week we have had an interesting quiz tour of Southampton as our club social, our ergo and circuits sessions have continued, but this weeks highlight is the socially distanced return to water, with many members taking advantage of the great weather. We are looking forwards to seeing you all on the water together soon.
Today, we have been racing the Basingstoke Canal Un-Hasler Race - so far 17 results in, with racers choosing either running 3,5,8 or 10km or cycling 5,10,20 or 30km.
There have been some fantastic results and fun.
Awesome Job all of you who took part. See you in two weeks for the Reading Un-Hasler.
Many thanks to Rebecca Newton and Exeter CC for the idea.
Fantastic nights racing tonight organised by Jacob.
"It was well good" was the understated praise, from one family. The amount of work put in and imagination involved was amazing!
Phil won again for the second week in a row and will be running next weeks challenge, with Hinves family coming second again for the 4th time in a row.
Thank you Jacob
