The team of the Marlins has participated this past weekend in the III Spanish Cup of Kayak de Mar, held in Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Cádiz). This Cup was also the National Selective, to make the team that will represent Spain in the Sea Kayaking World Cup in France in the month of September.
The competition team started on Thursday June 27 with 24 paddlers and their 2 coaches. The competition was held during the days of Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 June. 19 clubs from all over Spain participated with more than 150 athletes.
The Lanzarote players managed to win several podiums, obtaining a total of 21 medals: 5 golds, 7 silvers and 9 bronzes. These achievements proclaimed to the Marlins runners-up of the III Cup of Spain, and champions of the III Cup of Spain of Young Promises.
The good work of the Club means that right now they are only separated by 3 points in the National League of the first classified Club, with the Spanish Sea Kayak Championship still remaining in September in Palma de Mallorca to fight for the first position in this league. As for the National League of Promising Youth, the Marlins are ranked first, with a considerable advantage over the other clubs.
On the other hand, Nicolás Betancor Montelongo in the Juvenile category and Gabriel Cabrera Caraballo in the U23 category, got the direct pass to be part of the National Team to represent Spain in the World Cup in France. Matías Di Candia in senior category, also has options to be part of the selection, because despite not getting the pass, will be classified by the results of the season and enter by ranking. This means that there will be three Lanzarote paddlers forming part of the team in the World Cup.
The Marlins Club wants to congratulate all the Canarian clubs that have competed in the III Spanish Cup for their results, and congratulate all the Canary Islands paddlers who have achieved a place and who will represent us in the World Cup. A real pride that canary teams stand out in canoeing in the modality of Kayak de Mar.
