Our members actively compete in marathon racing. WDCC regularly enters in regional races such as the Stour Descent, a 15 mile race along the River Stour in Dorset. In the past, we have successfully completed in the Annual 125 mile Devizes to Westminster Canoe Race.
The club has a small fleet of K1 (one person) and K2 (two person) race boats suitable for beginners to intermediate paddlers, including Lightning boats for junior paddlers. All our new club members get introduced to paddling in stable race boats and many of them get the bug for competitive canoeing!
