Race progress online

I thought I would post details of the race progress tracking tools provided by the DW organisers. We will be listed under 'overnight crews' as we are entered in the Senior Doubles event. Julien and I are boat number 346 and John and Mattias are boat number 347.

If the tool works as advertised you should be able to see our split times recorded at various checkpoints en route as well as an ETA for our arrival at Westminster (should you wish to come along and cheer us over the line on Easter Sunday morning).

Our current plan is to start at 09:15 on Saturday and, optimistically, our progress should look something like the table below. Inevitably, we expect some slippage and we will be very happy if we finish within 24 hours!

Location Elapsed time Time of day
Devizes 00:00 09:15
Reading 10:00 19:15
Teddington 19:30 04:45
Westminster 23:00 08:15


Hi Luke!

Only one more day to go. It's time to wish you good luck for the race. Take a deep breath and go for it!
I enjoyed reading about your preparations.

After DW back to seakayaking again? Your condition must be great!

Thanks Hans, after DW I will be taking a bit of time with my family so it may be a month or two before I get back to any sea kayaking!

Certainly I think this training has made me a stronger paddler and it has given me the chance to refine my forward stroke. There will definitely be some long term benefits for my sea kayaking.
