The Devizes to Westminster Canoe Marathon is one of the great endurance races in the UK, possibly the world. It's an annual event that can be tackled by novices as a one-off challenge or be part of an all-consuming passion for the perfectionist paddler.

Either way, Richmond Canoe Club is one of the best club's to begin and develop your skills to tackle the task. We have a host of members who have completed and won DW across a wide range of categories and most are happy to share their experience.

PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING ANY NON-MEMBERS WHO WISH TO JOIN THE CLUB SPECIFICALLY FOR TAKING ON DW 2012.

Date for next year below. Turn up and see if you have what it takes. More information from the DW website.
