After some errors with the Grolsch Kano(n) canoe while creating and storing it, water came in increasingly fast. And, after still being able to participate in the 100 and 200 meter races, has been steered to the side in the 400 meter race to prevent it from sinking. The other two canoes that participated – Blue Kanocao and Murdock – did do very well in the races, leading to victories in the following five of the nine races: 100m women, 200m men, women and mixed, 400m women. The final prize that we won in the weekend was the award for best University, based on the overall scores in the races. Other races have been won by OTH Regensburg and HTWK Leipzig and we would like to congratulate them on their victories. All awards and winners can be found here. We would also like to thank all other participants for the very enjoyable weekend and their sportsmanship and sociability, which has made the weekend to be unforgettable. The entertaining weekend would not have been possible without the help of all our sponsors, which have supported us in the construction of the canoes and which have even encouraged us from the waterside. Their support has really helped us in the process leading to the challenge and we are very thankful for their help. Finally our special thanks go to the organisation committee of the concrete canoe challenge, who have facilitated us with everything we needed to enjoy the weekend. We have seen ourselves how much work has been done to organise the event and we really appreciate the efforts that have been made to make the weekend as amusing as possible. We would like to see everyone back at the officious European Championship in Germany in June, which will be held in Cologne this year. Two of our canoes have been reserved to participate in this challenge, which will hopefully result in the same or an even more prosperous outcome as the Dutch challenge.
