February will see the start of 2019’s Waterside Series, a set of four races organised by Newbury Canoe Club (NCC) that covers part of the Devizes to Westminster (DW) race course, designed to give DW competitors the chance to experience and practise the whole DW course in the weeks before Easter.
Traditionally, Adventure Dolphin members have helped to marshal these races, and in return we have received a financial contribution to our club. So, here’s our call for help – if you are a marathon paddler who is not racing or supporting a crew, or a paddler within the club, please would you join us as a marshal to assist with a variety of activities such as making sure that the paddlers, supporters and the general public are kept safe when the portages around locks involve crossing roads.
All families are welcome and if it’s your first time, you’ll be partnered with someone who knows the ropes! Refreshments are provided free of charge and we can assist with transport as locations include: Kintbury, Marsh Benham, Bulls and Aldermaston locks. The average day starts around 9am, and finishes at approximately 1pm depending on the location.
If you can help or would like more details, please contact Bill Whitaker via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
