Devizes to Westminster Waterside Race A

Posted: 9th February 2018

Our Devizes to Westminster crews took to the water at the weekend to compete in the first of the Waterside races on the Kennet and Avon Canal.

Greeted by a crisp morning and near perfect paddling conditions, our crews performed well over the 13.5 mile course, holding their own against the other school teams. Our first crew in was Charlie Gibbard and Jacob Gibbons, in under 2 hours and 30 minutes. Our mixed crews of Carys Twyman and Frederick Williams, and Katherine Birchell and George Bowles were equally successful finishing 4th and 8th out of the schools in their category. Jake Warren nobly teamed up with a paddler from Marlborough School and crossed the finish line in just over 3 hours.
