BUSA WWR 2007

Chris and Jo in the C2

The annual British Universities Sports Association White Water Racing was held for the 4th time on the Washburn near Harrogate.  Lots and lots of students and racing – I think Manchester University took 10 people but we must’ve competed in about 40 races (guess!).  Fun and frolicks in sinking C1’s, smashed C2’s and simply unstable White Water Racers!  I guess it was always going to be an exciting weekend; I think Mr Fairweather and I learnt humility in paddle choice (Dave more than me :-)), and anyone who went with half a paddle usually relearns the fear of grade 3!
