A small team of Mercia Paddlers took the honours with a second (Laurence) and equal third place (Mike and Nigel) on the Barrow river race. It has a narrow twisty start and follows a flat back loop of the River Soar, north of Leicester. The course is only 15 minutes and we hope to get more paddlers there for the next event on Jan 14th. You can paddle any boat you wish, as long as it has no rudder. I overtook a coracle! Start and finish is at a pub!
