Thameside ‘1’ – race cancellation from Reading canoe club
Following the course inspection on Friday, we are regrettably cancelling Thameside 1 (Aldermaston to Reading) Sunday 2 March. The tow path is still shut and flooded in several places. It is impossible to get in under the bridge at Fobney and County lock is effectively a compulsory weir shoot! (all be it a rather flat one). Although the river conditions are improving, there is more rain forecasted over the coming week and the improvements required on the lower section of the course are probably impossible in the time frame.
