Organiser's Report

  The day was dull, with intermittent light drizzle, and no wind. The water level was the lowest we can     remember, with no water coming over the weirs in Durham.

  The river was manageable but needed careful reading of the flow.

  A certain amount of walking and pushing was the order of the day in several parts of the river, and at the end. Good for spectators.

  The low water level resulted in a lower than usual number of entries, but was one up on last year.

  Again, there were no slalom boats.

  We extend grateful thanks to the members of the Durham Kayak Club for providing safety cover for the event.

  This is greatly appreciated, and vital to the success of the race.

  Thanks again go to our group of helpers and to Keith & Audrey Wickham for their continued sponsorship through Gate 7.

HOPEFULLY we look forward to seeing you all again next year May Day Bank Holiday,

Monday May 4th 2020 12 noon start.

  This is dependent upon there being access to the river at Durham. If the proposal by the Durham  Council to build a new Civic Centre on The Sands car park and adjacent grassed areas goes ahead,this may not be possible.

  Should access not be possible, then an alternate venue for the race will be sought.
