Paddlers for Life expect the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant to be a highlight of 2012.
We will share the experience with other breast cancer survivor crews.
All being well Paddlers for Life will be participating in the pageant. There are many logistical hurdles to leap as well as safety issues, the weather and paddler’s fitness to complete this challenging paddle but we are optimistic.
Interested members who may participate met with Louisa to find out what we can look forward to.
Louisa outlined the complexity of the pageant and Paul ran through interesting facts about paddling on a large tidal river such as the Thames.
A few members are to meet in London in a couple of weeks to paddle with other paddlers so that the organisers can get a sense of how paddlers and their dragon boats will cope with a tidal river.
