Division 2 Men

Khaleel Ziauddin maintains his position as the top Shark Men’s K1 paddler with a 12th place finish, collecting 250 points, which means he is now 42nd in the Division 2 ranking lists with 831 points.

Neal Underwood was also racing in Division 2 and came 21st, earning him 45 points to add to his season total of 335, he is in 62nd place.

Canoe Doubles

Two pairings of Canoe Doubles took part in separate events at the Nene, Neal Underwood paddled in the C2 event with Liah Boyle, coming second.

After their pairing at the Vintage Slalom; Neal Underwood and Eleftherios Chatzilamprou, raced C2 in the Officials Event (although this time in a slightly more modern boat), coming 4th overall but would have given them a good ranking in the main Canoe Doubles event.
