Alan “The Rack” Lam was part of the original G1 Panda that took Bewl Water by storm in 2008. Windy Pandas secured “The Rack” on a long term contract only when an undisclosed amount of Bamboo sticks were agreed after rounds of heavy negotiations.

During his 4 fours with the Windy Pandas, “The Rack” has accumulated 11 races in total, only ever missing one race in Windy Pandas short history. “The Rack” started his career as a pocket rocket, propelling the boat from the back, but as the years go by. he has spent most of his time at the front of the boat, drinking Thames water from the immense bow wave generated by the Windy Pandas.”The Rack” is also the light male paddler Windy Pandas have ever had.

When he’s not drinking Thames Water, you would normally find “The Rack” on Google image or modelling for FHM.
