The year has been a very successful one for the junior section, we have had over 150 participants in our events. Our Academy Section who cater for complete beginners was really popular with six people taking part in the spring and eight in the Autumn Series. We have twelve placed open for next year. On the match front we finished second in the Merseyside Championships, 4th in our first national held on the River Weaver, our cadets finished 3rd in their age group of the same event. Hopefully in 2014 we will continue this success and build for better future.

We begin the Spring Series 2014 on March 24 and run every other Sunday for six events. Our Autumn Series will begin on 17th August. For more details see our 2014 Calendar
