Three of Oxford kayaking schools have been invited by Falcon Rowing and Canoe Club to compete in this new event under the revised name of Pursuit Racing. K4 (four seater kayaks) pursuit racing enables boats to race on narrow rivers or canals by starting at intervals and seeking to overtake those in front at the start before reaching the finishing line and being declared Head of the River - as in rowing.
The three schools invited to train for this new, to the UK, event were Cherwell, Cheney and St Gregory the Great. Cherwell and Cheney fielded competitors and Cherwell won the race becoming the first winners of what organiser retiring chair of Falcon Rowing and Canoe Club, Peter Travis, states will become an annual event.
Peter Travis adds that racing in kayaks get kids fitter and safer on water and about local rivers. Falcon has a programme to get children rowing and kayaking starting with children moving into secondary schools and can take young people right though to British Olympic development squads. Travis added this new event will attract even more local children to this form of boating and will grow as an important new Oxford Event. He thanked Oxford City Council and Sport England for their help in funding the race. And the many adult helpers parents teachers and Falcon members who administered it and cheered loudly from the bank.
