British Raft Race Series

The British Raft Race Series is becoming more and more popular as time goes on. The series in encouraging new blood within the sport and also pushing current racers to go harder in light of growing competition.

Escape Watersports supported the 2012 Llandysul Raft Race, and were even fortunate enough to enter a team which placed 2nd overall out of 20 teams that entered. Well done boys!

A really fun weekend was had by everyone who came down, and at the end of the day all walked away with fond memories and a small prize courtesy of Escape Watersports.

British Raft Racing hosted the National Selection event at Lee Valley in December, the winning teams of which are going to represent GB at the World Championships in New Zealand later this year.
With new age categories created for the World Championships thanks to its growing popularity, a youth selection event is being held later this month at Lee Valley which will lead onto the next big raft race event on the River Derwent.

A huge thanks to British Raft Racing for putting the time and effort into these events, making them such a joy to be a part of!
