Visit From World Champion

SuffolkSUP members had an excellent day on Saturday when current 24 Hour Distance Endurance world champion (180km in 24 hours) Jo Hamiliton-Vale came to visit Alton Water. Joined by Peter Vale the morning was spent in the classroom discussing the equipment, nutrition and skills required to successfully partake in the Endurance race series this year. Lots of information was shared and we all now feel better prepared for the following races that a number of club racers are taking part in this year.

Thames Ultra Endurance race 55 km - 27 May

Norfolk Ultra Endurance race 80 km - 17 / 18 June

Round Jersey Challenge 65 km - 12 August

Great Glen Ultra Endurance race 93 km - 14 October

Many thanks to Jo and Peter for an excellent day that was rounded off with some windy downwind paddling on the lake!

See you on the water...
