A reminder this Sundays race is the final event in the VLC Cake Series for Novices and Experienced paddlers alike. It is a real tester over 29 Km but a great opportunity to get some great river practice for Fish.

The prizes for the day remain cakes, however we are doing the draw for the fantastic lucky draw prizes up for grabs for all entrants not only novices. Just a reminder for every entry in the series you get one chance in the draw. So if you entered all three you have three tickets in the draw.  Online entries received for the cancelled Race 1 have been included. Don’t forget you have to be at the race on Sunday to claim your prize else we go to a redraw.
