Ascot Kayaking Club JOHN SIMS RACE 2019

Not a regular racer but interested in giving it a go? Then this is the race for you. The biggest event on the Ascot Kayaking Club calendar and very well attended. The John Sims is a very do-able 11.5km with shorter options available. The race caters for all skill levels and boat types, from fiercely competitive K1’s to plastic boats and novice paddlers having a go at competitive racing. Enter with some friends and enjoy friendly rivalry or test yourself against the field, there’s something for everyone. Race day is usually blessed with glorious sunshine and calm conditions.
