While the rest of the country struggled with rain and snow, March was another (very) dry month in the west, resulting in limited opportunities for river running in particular. People did take advantage of some of the local tidal play features for some peer paddling, and similar on the sea kayaking front as well.
Two further weekends in Leisureland brought Galway Canoe Polo League to an end for 2013. Thanks again to everyone who competed over the weeks and congratulation to the Div A winners Kamikaze and the Div B winners Moy. A special mention to all who gave generously of their time in terms of organisation over the winter months. All are now looking forward to the summer competitions and moving to training on the canal with the longer evenings.
Well done to all who took part in the coaching weekend with Canoeing Ireland this month - great to see some more stepping up to help with development of the club. New coaching skills will be put to good use across marathon, polo, surf and freestyle in the club.
Another successful session in the pool with the juniors as well. One more junior pool session planned and then be on to the canals.
