Southampton goes to NSR 2014

The National Student Rodeo is the highlight of Southampton’s kayaking year, and 2014 proved no exception. Congratulations to everyone who competed and helped us win 2nd place and a shiny new Zet Raptor boat! We did really well to have someone in most of the finals and took part in some really good paddling. We even had several competitors in the women’s intermediate heats which was a new category this year.

With the theme of heroes and villains SUCC dressed as fishermen – the villains of kayaking. Everyone got into the spirit of the costume running around in yellow rain ponchos and lining the course with fishing rods and Angling signs, though not all of them survived the party on Saturday night!

Some of our olds started getting a bit broody…for dogs! This video was the result and will hopefully put a smile on your face, it certainly does ours 🙂

Everyone had a really good trip and we are looking forward to next year already!
