Stratford Paddle

Kayakers warm-up at Stratford for DW race

In the last training session before the 125 mile Devizes to Westminster Canoe Marathon, all crews were working hard to be ready for the gruelling Easter weekend race. Following their qualifying 34 mile paddle last Tuesday, it wasn’t easy for the teams to get back on the water; however all the boats dedicated themselves to put a good time in on the “short” 18km sprint.
