Aaron Jackson Harvey Harwood Colin Muse Graham Devaney
Aaron as helped lead the U18 polo team to great success this year and is always willing to help, often putting others before himself. He is developing his coaching and helps run dock sessions. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Stanley Embankment has become a firm favourite of his and his paddling confidence has come on leaps and bounds over the season. He is an inspiration to all.

 

Harvey has had a tough time this year. He was unable to paddle until June but has made the most of his trips to Stanley Embankment, Tees Barrage, Llangollen and numerous surf sessions to Crosby and Anglesey. He hasn’t swum once so far this year, which is amazing seeing how much time he spends upside down. Colin has consistently helped at pool sessions throughout the year and has been the “main driver” of the beginners’ courses at the docks. He is always the first to greet both new and existing members. Whilst paddling on the club trip to the French Alps Graham broke out into a strong eddie on the Middle Durance (Grade 1-2). He capsized and struggled to roll and bailed almost immediately. Some of us ran as fast as we could upstream, not to help with any impending pin, but rather to take photo and video evidence which will be released at the AGM
