MadSat Raft Team 



MadDash Super Raft Race 

What will happen on the day 

Please park in the field adjacent to Hereford Rowing Club and aim to arrive before 12am. Race starts at 1pm. There will be a pre-race briefing beforehand that all crew members need to attend.

The race course is over approximately 9 miles from Hereford Rowing Club, upstream (yes, upstream, but there is very little flow) to the green Railway bridge, where you will need to turn the raft anti-clockwise (right to left) around a marker barrel floating in the water. Then paddle back downstream, past the rowing club to the Victoria footbridge. This time, turn clockwise (right to left) around the barrel and paddle back upstream for about 4 miles. On seeing the next barrel, turn clockwise (right to left) around it. Paddle all the way back to the barrel by the Victoria footbridge, going around it as before. Finally, paddle upstream back to the rowing club.

Rafts will be set off at 1 minute intervals. Start position will be based upon recent previous results, slowest going first. Teams arriving late will be set-off right at the front.
