Lincoln Race Report

Mercia paddlers achieved two second places at the Lincoln marathon race. A sunny clear day was ideal for racing. Several people uncertain which club we were from, asked about our new racing T shirts, a reproduction of the 1980’s club colours. New team paddler, Josh got promoted straight from Division 9 to 7 and was really pleased with the result over a four mile course. He even led at one stage near the finish. Adam continued his steady improvement and made a well earned promotion to Division 5 and a second place. The final points score put us in 5th place overall, our best Midlands result.
