Extreme Canoes

Devizes%20Westminster.jpg
The Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Marathon goes along the bottom of the farm so I was out early this morning pitying them as they set off for 125 miles of pure slog. The hard types who go non-stop can do it in under 18 hours and consider it one of the toughest races in the world for its unrelenting effort.
And of course like any pointless extreme event a lot of Shaky Boat types take part, I just hope they remember what they ought to do once they get to Westminster.....

125 miles? In a canoe? At this time of year?

Great Caesar's galleys... they're either heroic, or a complete bunch of twats.
