Well done to all Worcester paddlers who have taken part in the Waterside series and good luck to all doing the latter Waterside races and Devizes to Westminster this year.

The Worcester Ring Challenge is our 15 or 20 mile circular event through the beautiful Worcestershire countryside. This year it is on Saturday 14 July 2018 and entries are open. You can speed round (the record in a K1 is under 3 hours) or cruise it. It’s a challenge either way. Racing boats, open canoes, SUPs, tourers, sea kayaks, everyone is welcome.
