Winner Sharks

Congratulations Jacob

Jacob Simpson won the division 3 slalom at Shepperton by 5 seconds, with an impressive second run on Sunday 22nd October.


This is an impressive win in Jacob’s 3rd division 3 slalom and only his 4th ever slalom and looks very promising for the future. Jacob is training regularly at Harefield with The Sharks slalom team, why don’t you join him and share in our success?

Although this is the last division 3 slalom of the season, Jacob’s result will move him up the rankings and make him a favourite for early promotion next year.

Also in action on Sunday in division 3 Men’s K1 Was Sam Liddy who came 6th and first Junior 14.


Sam only took up canoeing this year and was promoted at Harefield slalom in August and this was his second division 3 slalom, Sam also trains at Harefield and is part of The Sharks growing slalom success story. Isn’t it time you joined?

On Saturday Alex Aldred was representing The Sharks in Division 3 Men’s K1; like Sam and Jacob, Alex was promoted at Harefield. On Saturday he came 6th and second J14.
