SUDBURY Canoe Club’s Kate Baker triumphed in the first ranking slalom of the season, in Yalding, Kent.

Competing in the British Canoe Union Slalom, Baker, the club’s junior woman in Kayak Division Three, took first place, convincingly beating all female classes in the race with a consistent time in both runs.

This was an excellent result for Baker, who only took up paddling in February last year.
