N1SCO really is for everyone / N1SCO European Championships

There were smiles all round after another great weekend of N1SCO racing in Swanage. This may have been the final of the N1SCO European championships 2017 but it still ticked all the boxes when it comes to fun racing for all ability paddlers and racers. There is no other event in the world that you will find first time paddlers, family cruisers and performance athletes on the same start line. It’s certainly a sight to be seen and experienced. But don’t just take our word for it!
Check out three mini interviews by Helen Dennison with 3 very different paddlers.

The event video below with Soaring Productions and Ian Gray Promotional Filming and photography gives you a really good feel for the event.

10th/11th June saw 100 Naish One paddlers from 8 countries including one die hard competitor from Japan race at the N1SCO European Championships. Taka took the 22 hour commute from Tokyo to race on the sheltered waters of Swanage Bay, nestled in a beautiful valley on the UK’s South coast. Competitors ranged from 10 years of age through to 69 years young and from first time racers through family cruisers to trained SUP athletes vying for the title. Regardless of paddling experience smiles were all around as new friendships were made as tales of racing were shared on the beach and in the N1SCO Beach Bar. Racing followed the N1SCO format with three race disciplines; Sprint, Mid distance and a Long distance race on the Sunday with guest appearance of local pirate Slack Sparrow. Saturday evening saw the racers and their families sit down to a social dinner in the beach bar overlooking the waters of the bay with free beer from event sponsor Whitstable Bay before enjoying live music and the atmosphere of the towns yearly Fish Festival. Attention now moves to the final UK N1SCO Championships of the year at Bray lake on the 8th July for the N1SCO Inland Championships which expects to welcome a sell out fleet once again to enjoy the N1SCO race format.

Remember N1SCO racing is for everyone and you don’t even need to have your own Naish One Design board (N1SCO) as you can rent one from the event organisers.

The next event will be held at Bray Lake, near Reading next month on the 8th of July.
