Dear Canoeing Ireland Members,

Another Exciting week for Canoeing Ireland.

On the home front the Junior Liffey last Saturday had all the right ingredients,
Sunshine, good water and lot of thrills and spills it was a great success with 130
junior  paddlers taking on the might of the  Liffey , for many this was their first
Junior Liffey. A big thank you to all the Rescue Crews on the weirs without whom the
race would not happen.

On the International front our Paracanoeist Pat O Leary placed 4th at the world cup
sprint regatta in Duisburg Germany.
Oisín Ó Fearghaíl from  Kilcullen canoe club  placed 2nd in Div. 1 Slalom in
Nottingham.

Watch out for Hannah Craig who is racing this weekend in the Slalom European
Championships
in Germany.

Level 5 Skills Training & Assessment in Italy
Canoeing Ireland is happy to announce seven new Level 5 Skills Trainees and eight
new Level 5 Skills Paddlers following a very busy week of training and assessments
in Italy in May 2015.  With a dreadful forecast predicting 180mm of rain over 4 days
it was looking like the courses and assessments would have to leave Italy and move
to France or Switzerland, but for once the river Gods were on our side and forecast
dramatically improved giving a very Irish Climate in Italy of showers and sunny
spells with ideal water levels.

Congratulations to Mateja Trpin, Dervla McAuley, Kevin Foynes, Leo Riedmuller,
Patrick Finn, Barry Loughnane and David Higgins who all completed their Level 5
Skills Training in ideal water conditions on the emerald green waters of the
Sermenza and the crystal blue waters of the Egua river in Val Sesia.

Congratulations to Dave Holden, Dave Horkan, Derek Murphy, Simon Cadec, Laura
Griffin, Susan Doyle, Frank Carr and Ultan O'Kane who all successfully passed their
Level 5 Skills Assesments on the challenging waters of the Middle Sermenza, Lower
Sermenza and the challenging Sesia Gorge.

We look forward to seeing many of the trainees moving forward to complete the Level 4 Instructor Training Course and the 8 successful assessee's applying for Level 4 Instructor Assessment in the coming months.


At home coming up this weekend:

We have the Canoe Polo Galway Open
