Waterside series

Some of our senior racers have been testing their endurance with competing in ‘The Waterside Series.’

The series consists of four Sunday time trials. Each race is spaced at fortnightly intervals and progressively increases in length from 13.5 miles to 34 miles, with between 19 & 35 portages. The river conditions have been tough with fast flowing, swirly water, and very slippery, muddy portages.

Adrian & Bertie have raced well in their K2 and it’s always great to see their cheery faces at each portage. They are taking part in this series of races as part of their training towards The Devizes to Westminster endurance race, which is a gruelling 125 miles, which they are planning to complete at Easter… hopefully in under 24 hours! We wish them both well in their training and will update you with their race progress soon.

Two other club members that seem to enjoy the annual challenge of the series is Doug and Becky. The pair have raced in their K1s finishing respectfully in the top 5 each time.
