On the 13th/14th August 50 teams from across the globe attended the 13th London Internation hosted by Meridian Canoe Club. The combination of camping, food and pitches all on one site makes this a value for money competition which is consistently attended by international teams. Being an hour from Dover and close to all London airports makes the venue easily accessible and means the competition is well attended with entries filling up fast each year. This years division 1 final saw Conde sur Vire retain their title as champions against Meridian A in an exciting match. Next year the 14th London International is scheduled to happen on the last weekend of the Olympics (11-12 August) so why not make a long weekend of it and pop down to the Olympic park which is only a few miles away from the venue?!
A huge thank you to Meridian Canoe Club and all it’s helpers for another fantastic tournament. And to Glenn Summerbell for taking some amazing photos.
