Thameside 2 2016


This weeks course was along the Thames,  Reading  to Longridge Canoe club at Marlow, a distance of 18.5 miles... a bit of the DW course at Easter.

4 K2 crews which included Pangbourne members and a K1 paddled Thameside 2 race yesterday. Challenging conditions are becoming the norm  this winter and yesterday was no exception with the river on red boards and a strong gusty wind, making for a fast race with Keith Moule- CLM- winning the Senior mens K1 class in 1 hr 55mins! 

Well done to all and thanks go to all support crews who followed us down the course......
