Devizes to Westminster Canoe Race: news


The annual nonstop Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Race (“DW”) concluded in London today (Easter Sunday, 21 April).

For only the second time in the race’s history, the event was won by a mixed pair, Dan Seaford and Alexandra Lane (pictured)
of Reading Canoe Club. The duo saw off intense competition from international athletes and military canoeists from numerous Army regiments and the Royal Marines to win the DW race, often described as one of the toughest endurance events in the world.
