The 2013 Student Boater X is taking place on the 22nd of June. For a little flavour of what it is all about check out this write up from Jack Roberston about last years event. Enjoy!
The Student Boater X is the biggest unofficial kayaking event on the student paddling calendar and now officially recognised by Bomb Flow it was going to be the biggest so far. With guaranteed sun, cool alpine flows and a huge selection of prize to be won it wasn’t hard to persuade a few hundred student paddlers that a spontaneous inter uni race down the L’Argentiere-la-Bessee slalom course was a good idea. There were five categories, catering for all levels of paddler. With old boys and girls competing for the Bloater X title and swimmers for the Inflatey X title, everyone else found themselves in a fight for the beginner, intermediate and advanced prizes.
