Over his decades with Fairfield he has helped put our Canoe Club in the forefront of the canoeing community. To celebrate Tom the Canoeist, for his contribution and the history he has helped create we had a few drinks and nibbles on Sunday 24th February. A great crowd turned up to thank Tom, to name a C4 "The Ohman" and to gratefully accept a magnificent timber k2 from the 1956 olympic era.
Each year, the Murray Marathon attracts hundred of paddlers to take the challenge between Christmas and New Year. In 2012, FCC sisters Naomi and Sophie Johnson paddled the half-marathon, winning the 202km handicapped race. Naomi reflects on the competition, the beautiful Murray river, and what it's like to spend fifteen hours in a boat with her sibling!
