Two Falcon Juniors, Ed Sharp and May Carter, have been selected to represent the Thames Up-River region at the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta in the J14 single and WJ14 single respectively.
The regatta takes place in Nottingham on Saturday 23rd April.
We wish them the best of luck!
With the growing demand on our existing fleet of 8 Ravens, Falcon has just taken delivery of 4 new Zetas from Marsport. These new boats will fit in well along aside the Ravens as a mid stability junior / small adult boat, and be a more comfortable step up to the slightly less stable Cougars. Fitted with low seats (there is the option to for a higher version) and quick adjustment foot plates, the new boats will strengthen the Falcon range of craft and will I'm sure become a popular choice come the summer months.
The final Falcon Newsletter! Click on the image to access the pdf.
Since the last Newsletter there has been a lot of water under the bridge (ho ho!) And there are lots of good things coming up: the Falcon 70s night, senior socials, the Christmas dinner, the junior Christmas event and many weeks of circuit training (what bliss!) It would be great to have all this and much more in the next Newsletter. So please, please send me all your pictures and articles: firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for submissions is Friday 15 November.
Congratulations to all who paddled at the Henley hasler at the weekend. We did it - Falcon managed to win again and we're are off to a flying start to the new Hasler season with two wins out of two.
We had some amazing results with Lizzie, Julia, Kitty, Izzy, Jeremy, Thomas, Nick K and Dennis all getting maximum 20 points each. Followed by Andy, Tessa, Catherine, Anna E-S, Mike, Julian and David W all getting 19 points. Rebecca and Alan both got 18 points...
Lizzie and Andy promoted to Div 5, Tessa and Rebecca to Div 7 and Julia to Div 8.
The Hasler Finals on Sunday (20 September) was a great day of racing. Wouldn't have been possible without everyone's help, and it was really nice to work do well with Banbury.
FALCON WON THE LIGHTNING TROPHY!
Great work from all 28 (!) lightning paddlers who raced, many for the first time. You did us very proud. Special mention to Harry for 2nd in the U10 boys & Katie 3rd in the U10 girls.
