Canoers from Addlestone received over a dozen medals at a recent awards ceremony after taking a national canoe and kayaking competition by storm.

The Addlestone Canoe Club (ACC) won an incredible total of 19 medals between them at British Canoe Racing's National Senior, Under 23 and Junior Sprint Championships in Nottingham.

Club members picked up nine bronzes, eight silvers and two golds at the regatta, punching well above their weight for a team of 13.

The Club's Head Race Coach Wendy Dodson said that the achievements highlighted all the hard work ACC members had put in over the preceding months.

"The team have trained very hard this summer on the canal at Addlestone Canoe Club and have achieved many successes in both marathon and sprint events.

"Many thanks must go to their dedicated coaches and training partners," she said.

There were some great individual success stories amongst the broader view of the ACC's experience at the regatta.

One of them was Zoe Hurrell, who claimed gold with her partner in the doubles race in what was her last regatta as a junior.

ACC's Becky Pemble won four national medals in total — three silvers and one bronze — for different distances in both singles and crew boats.

Her sister Hannah was not far behind her with two silvers and two bronzes, while their Dad Doug also claimed podium places with two bronzes in the veterans' category.

Meanwhile, the Club's two youngest members, brother and sister Emily and William, collected medals for achieving the most points across the years’ regattas in the under 12 category.

ACC are based at Burcott Gardens in between Addlestone and Byfleet.
