As we hoped and might expected the success of the past years continued in season 2013. The BetonBrouwers attended two events, the Dutch Concrete Canoe Challenge in Utrecht and the BetonKanu-Regatta in Nürnberg. In both events a lot of prizes were won, but the most important were the 5 first prizes and the sustainability award in Utrecht, and winning in both men and women categories in Nürnberg. Like every year we have built new concrete canoes for this season. Due to a time problem we made just three new canoes instead of the five we planned. But this was no big deal, because the canoes from previous seasons were still in such a good shape that they were good enough to participate in the race in the Netherlands. With one of our new concrete canoes and three from previous seasons we participated in the BetonKanoRace in Utrecht. The hard training in the weeks before the BKR paid out in the finals on the old canals in the centre of Utrecht. Thanks to a good training and strong canoes we managed to win five 1st, five 2nd and six 3rd places with our men, women and mixed teams. Particular attention goes to the sustainability award, we have gain this award because we used a very old canoe, “De Slachttand”. This was the 4th season we used this canoe and it is still working and apparently good enough to win races with it.
