125 MILE NON-STOP CANOE RACE

EVEREST OF CANOEING -  DEVIZES TO WESTMINSTER CANOE RACE. 20TH APRIL 2019

Neil Boast, our award winning, CH supporting oxygen man, will again be kayaking - this time with his friend Jeff Cribb - the gruelling, non-stop 125 miles from Devizes to Westminster in the world's toughest canoe race, known as the 'Everest of canoeing'. The race starts at Devizes...along the Kennet and Avon Canal to the Thames, before reaching the most dangerous part, the tidal Thames and the last 17 miles. There are 77 portage (locks) to negotiate when they get out and have to carry their double kayak. They will have two support teams who will provide them with food and drink. This is a non-stop race that Neil and Jeff hope to complete in under 24 hours.

From Neil: "Whatever money we raise, BOC (my employer) will match. Nearer the time I will put a link so you can track us in the race (they fit location beacons on us in case we drown)"
