Tas Canoe clubs new adventure

The TCC decided to try a new sport this season (2011/2012).

We introduced a canoe polo roster with 6 teams of 5 participating.

It was a very exciting ten weeks and enjoyed by all playing and watching.

Flatwater Sprinting is Back

The 2011 Flatwater Sprint Series has started! If you wish to join in the fun then please contact Jeremy Norton.

We Survived the 2011 Deluge

The Wilmot River was running at a frantic pace! It cleaned the river of half a forest of trees and submerged logs as well as gouging out the river banks! The flood level was 6.1m, 0.6m below the flood of 2007 which wipe out our club shed. This time we remained high and dry!

Spin round the Dial Multisport

The 3rd ‘Spin round the Dial’ is set for September 26th 2010! Hopefully the weather will be kind to the hoards of entrant we’ll attract this year. If you have blown out the cobwebs at Ben Lomond, and found yourself doing OK at the Winter Challenge, then come along and show your wares in the north west!

Padgett wins in wet conditions

The 2009 Spin round the Dial Multisport race was run in less than ideal conditions.  The sun was out until the race started, then the rain squalls hit, some hail pounded, and the wind blew! But, everyone finished safely.  Mark Padgett won his first Spin round the Dial, followed by Michael Purton and Brent Ranson (see the results for more information).

The water level at Forth is rising.


At moment the water is running across the bottom level road and into the hollow.


The water is up to the top rail of the walkway as well.
