Canoe Challenge Completed

FCC members Ali and Ross have undertaken a kayak challange for Charity. Paddling from Glasgow to Edinburgh, along the new Canoe Trail on the canals, in two days.  Paddling over 50 miles in two days is a fantastic achievement.
 
Considering that 3 months ago they only had limited kayaing experience this is certainly a challanging challenge!

Willow Wins the Garry Boater X !

3 members of Forth Canoe Club competed in the 2nd Garry Boater X last weekend. It was a fantastic event, well organised and laid out with a great program on some progressive water. The competition is not for the faint hearted. There are 4 rounds over the day. In each race 6 competitors start together, battling for posision as they make thier way down grade 3+ water.  Forth Canoe Club came out of the Competition very well - with Willow taking First place and Matt coming 9th in the mens category, Rachel took 9th place in the Women's Category. Bring on Next Year!
