DSC_6876.JPGPAST GRAND PRIX WINNERS – BRID DEEGAN – ANN GALVIN – DOM JAMESON

With just two weeks to go, the Club is already fully prepared for some serious Slalom action ! The new SLALOM COURSE layout completed this Summer is producing some great results – more sheltered in its new location and closer to the shore. Also, the run-in at both ends is a lot shorter and so the arms should last till you set your new Personal Best Score !

All are very welcome. There are no age limits and there will be Saturday Morning Practice from Noon to 14.30hrs. Please make sure you have your Federation Competition License BEFORE arriving. You can even get a ONE DAY License if that helps – and these just take minutes to obtain by clicking here :
