This popular race is an excellent introduction to canoe racing and also provides a challenge for the more experienced paddler. All classes are open to paddlers with disabilities. The race starts 5 miles south of Axminster at Whitford Bridge M/R 263953. The river Axe twists and winds its way through the Axe Valley for 4 miles before opening out onto the estuary, with a further 1 mile of racing to the finish at Axmouth Harbour (Axe Yacht Club Seaton).

What a warm sunny day it was - with a good flow on the river - so thanks to all those that came along and made it enjoyable and successful.
Thanks to all the club members for organising this year's race and also to all the helpers who made the race possible.
