Congratulations to Jamie Cox (CCPC) who was awarded the RAJ Award at the 2017 National Canoe Sprint Championships.
The RAJ Award is awarded to the most Outstanding Junior Canoeist at an Australian National Championships
The Raj Award was named after a HMT safety boat (Cabin Cruiser) that was owned and operated by Gerry Brayne, ICF Official. The boat was used for 10 years on the Red Cross Murray Marathon Canoe race, for the safety of all canoeists. It carried radio communications and Red Cross first aid.
Jamie turned back while he was paddling the Men’s K1 2500 16 to assist a paddler who had capsized. Officials found Jamie to be helpful as a boat holder, has a great attitude and is respectful.
