SUCC takes part in two competitions a year (just to prove to the student’s union that we CAN) – while we’re mainly about “social kayaking” we sometimes put the skills we’ve learnt to the test!
BUCS Wild Water Racing
We first attended this competition in 2010, on the same weekend that the UK saw a huge amount of snowfall. Despite this SUCC ran the course in Tiger Onesies (from Primark) and made a great first impact. We are hoping to go again this year but this event is mostly slalom and C1 and hence we may not attend.
National Student Rodeo – NSR
Ask anyone about NSR, and all you will hear is positive things. It’s the UK’s biggest freestyle kayaking event with hundreds of students from across the UK – and massive parties at night too! Camp next to the National whitewater Centre in Nottingham and impress the judges with fancy-dress, going down a wave backwards – or if you really want to you can pull some tricks and get into the intermediate and expert categories!
