Olympic Hopes Regatta

Poznań, Poland

7-10 September 2023

This year Devizes Canoe Club had 2 juniors, Mollie Ball (for the 3rd time!), and Philippe Ehrnrooth, selected to represent GB at the international Olympic Hopes Regatta in Poland.

They were accompanied by our high performance coach, Trev Hunter, who was asked to be on the coaching team.
Furthermore, the indefatiguable Mark Ball, volunteered to help drive the boats out, which took the best part of 3 days in each direction.
We were very proud of our juniors who were in the only K2 crews to make the A final.
