Regatta London: Paddlers to take over the Thames this September

| March 13, 2019

Sunday 29th September brings a unique opportunity to kayak, canoe, row or SUP 12 miles through central London, as Regatta London takes over a closed River Thames!

With the river closed to other river traffic, kayakers, canoeists, rowers and Stand-Up-Paddleboarders will be able to safely enjoy this spectacular stretch of water in the heart of London.

The Thames Barrier will be closed during the day, reducing the fast tidal flows that can make this section of the tidal Thames so challenging.

It will be a fantastic way to see and enjoy the city, as well as an opportunity to help raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for amazing charities.
