Cancelled – Taper Race – Sunday 15th April 2018

Cancelled due to low numbers

Unfortunately due to clashes with other races and events, the number of entries was (as of 10pm Thursday night) well short of the numbers needed to hold a meaningful event.
A big thanks to those who did enter or signed up as volunteers.
We are confident that this will not be the case for our next big event, the “Salty Single Blader” on Sunday July 29th – hope to see you there!
