On June 1st 1874, the club committee asked members to support the purchase of a challenge cup for its first official canoe race which was a mile long. It started at Kingston Bridge and came downstream to “one-mile tree” a marker reputed to be an oak tree on the bank opposite Royal. This race has been run every year since, except during both world wars.
The North East Regional Development Team & White Water are running first ever Wavehopper Club Team Championship - the idea being to bring team racing to new clubs and take the sprint team format to new levels of excitement and fun - it's much harder than it looks!
