Duncan Eglin Trophy

The Duncan Eglin Trophy is awarded annually to the Junior (U18) who has made the most significant improvements in performance at Division A and International level during the previous season. The Trophy was presented to Wild Water Racing by Mr and Mrs Eglin in memory of their son, who was a keen Wild Water Race and canoeist in general, tragically killed in an Alpine climbing accident. At the time of his death, Duncan was Junior Men’s K1 coach. The winner is chosen by the Junior Team Manager, assisted by the relevant coaches, and is ratified by the Wild Water Racing Committee. The name of the winner is announced at the Junior Prizegiving in February.
