Congratulations to all the WCOC Juniors who made the journey south of London to compete at this year's Peter Palmer Junior Relays - hosted by "Sax". Once again they return with the trophy as overall winners, as well as an impressive 3rd in the Joan George competition for younger teams. Many thanks to all the adults who took them, and to the club for its continued support. Next year WCOC host this event at Hawse End - can our talented juniors make it 5 in row?!

You might have heard some of the older WCOC Juniors talking about "Lagganlia", "Deeside", "Norway", "Talent Camp" and so on. To get an idea of what it is like to attend one of these various summer training camps and tours:
- here is a link to a video from this year's "Lagganlia" Tour, and
- here is another link to various reports from WCOC and LOC Juniors who have attended them.
Happy watching / reading - it might just inspire you...
Peter Palmer winners again - another superb effort from all our Juniors! They've only gone and won entries and accommodation at 10Mila 2019 in Skane, Sweden for a WCOC Team. As always many many thanks to all the drivers and helpers, to WCOC for all your support, to SYO for putting on such a great event, to the Junior who returned from Uni and those who delayed going to Uni until after the race! You really are all Best in the West!
Well done to all the WCOC members who travelled south for the British Sprint Champs at Bath University. Once again the WCOC Juniors produced an impressive set of results, with top 10 placings for Daisy (5th W12); Caitlin and Rosie (4th and 9th W16); Joe S, Joe H and Charlie (3rd, 4th and 7th M16A), and Alastair (a superb 6th on Men's Open). For complete results, click here.
Just in case you missed it, here is a link to the BBC's Adventure Show which features the British Champs at Balmoral earlier in the year, and includes an interview with WCOC's very own Charlotte Watson along with lots of other familiar faces (available to watch until Sept 18th).
Many thanks to everyone who helped to support all the WCOC Juniors who went on the NWJS Norway Tour this August. (Report from participants to follow shortly...)
