Whitewater Racing - Barrow3 - 11/Jan/2014

From the following photos it looks like the weather was pretty sunny for a handful of paddlers from RCC who took part in the third wildwater or whitewater race near Barrow-Upon-Soar.

"Down River Racing is the purist form of Canoe and Kayak Racing in that the paddler is free to find their fastest route down a stretch of water, blending physical conditioning, skill and harmony with the river and their craft, against the clock"

 Much skill and harmony was on display when the physical conditioning came to be tested on the turbulent, swollen waters of the River Soar last Saturday!

Thanks to Dom for some great photos of our 'wildwater warriors', more of which can be found here.
