Paddles Up – March 2012

Editor’s Note: The layout of our website
has been changed in an effort to make it easier for visitors to find
information. These changes may take some time to get used to. The tabs
have been relabelled to better reflect our strategic plan. The menus are
more consistent across disciplines and more filtered content can be
found by clicking into sprint or whitewater. The sprint clubs page
has been revamped and we
have added new singlet icons to link to each club, thanks to Liam Birch.
The search function in the top right corner now works. We will be
updating photos and going through quality control checks in the co! ming
weeks to further improve communication. If you have feedback on the
changes or are having problems finding information, please contact
