This is a VERY long post containing several hundreds of pictures from Devizes to Westminster annual canoe and kayak marathon. The post split into 4 parts – one per each day, in chronological order. If you are looking for particular picture/participant you’d better know their time of start or finish and then you can guess approximate position in the gallery. If you are not able to find what you are looking for, please let me know, I will try to help. I have missed a few boats at the start and finish, but only a few…

I think it would be fair to thank and congratulate Neiline Totti Kay for her successfully and smoothly organized party!
This is a set of pictures I have taken mostly at the start of Devizes Westminster race 2013. Participants are taking on challenging 125 miles canoe and kayak marathon with a history of the race coming back to 1948. It runs from from Devizes in Wiltshire, goes along the Kennet and Avon Canal to the River Thames and down to Westminster in the heart of London. Those who enter the non-stop race will be in their boats for as long as 16-30 hours without breaks.
This year it run from 29th of March to 1st of April and with coldest Easter on records (night temperatures was falling well below zero) became a real test even for experienced paddlers with quite a few teams retired on the way… I think this Devizes Westminster race will get into history as one of the most enduring competitions!
For several reasons I did not manage to take pictures of the many competitors at the finishing line in Westminster, but a first few will be shown on this album after editing. Please come back soon.
It will be continued with a lot more pictures… You can download low resolution file for free or get high resolution file/order prints via link on the bottom of this post – the BIG BLUE BUTTON! 🙂
