Newbury Canoe Club took the decision to CANCEL Race D (18th March 2018) last weekend.
The depth of snow deposited over the Race course late Saturday
and into the early and mid hours of Sunday was enough for support crews
to have had significant difficulties in reaching the support locations.
This would have left paddling individuals or crews with the potential of not meeting up
with their support, for nutritional, change of clothing etc. if needed
or even to retire.
Race C/D Refunds
Newbury Canoe Club are offering the following refunds.
The amounts are proportionate to the outlay of costs in running each of the cancelled Races,
at the same time allocating some Series costs also.
. . ( Note: some costs for Race C were either not incurred or able to be deferred to Race D.
. . . This was not possible in the case for Race D. )
For Race C, the refund is £7.00/seat as previously advertised.
For Race D, The refund is £5.00/seat.
