Head of Gordon's Kayaking Becomes Approved Flat Water Racing Coach

Congratulations to Mr Hynds, Head of Kayaking, on becoming an approved flat water racing coach. Exciting time for Kayaking at Gordon's ahead. 

Congratulations to Mr Hynds, Head of Gordon’s Kayaking and former Great Britain kayaker, who has secured an external coaching role with British Canoeing. Mr Hynds is only one of two people nationwide to become an approved flat water racing coach, out of 1,500 applicants. As such, Mr Hynds is attending an invite-only coaching seminar with seven Olympians (four medallists), multiple World and European champions, and the Great Britain Canoe Sprint Head Coach.

These are exciting times for the sport at Gordon’s. Gordon’s Kayaking is in partnership with Elmbridge Canoe Club (the most successful club in Great Britain) and following a recent time trial, one of our female paddlers achieved times only ten minutes slower than the Senior Women's World Marathon Champion.
